The High Point Market Authority’s trend-tracking team, the 2020 Style Spotters, have modified their spring programming offerings in light of the recent cancellation of spring market due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This spring, Style Spotters LIVE! will be offered as a virtual event via Zoom on May 14 at 2 p.m. ET. The Style Spotters team of eight have been digitally perusing product from High Point Market exhibitors and will be discussing their favorites during the chat, which will be hosted by the Style Spotters Advisors, Shay Geyer and Gary Inman.
Typically occurring every Tuesday of market, Style Spotters LIVE! is a long-standing High Point Market tradition combining product insights, trend predictions, and an overview of launches and introductions via a panel discussion and live scrolling through Pinterest boards the Style Spotters have created while spotting products around market.
Given the current economic situation, the Style Spotters will also share a few business-building tips and discuss how they are each moving their own businesses forward in this challenging time.
“Style Spotters LIVE! is always an energy-packed, insight-rich event that usually draws a standing-room-only crowd. Even though we can’t all be together, I’m thankful for the team’s commitment to digitally dive into the current product offerings and offer a virtual event that will provide a thorough overview of what’s trending,” commented Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority. “This a creative industry, and despite the present situation, we still thrive on inspiration, which this event will certainly provide.”
In addition to Style Spotters LIVE!, team members are still creating individual Pinterest boards comprised of their top picks of trending products for the upcoming seasons. These boards will debut on May 14 immediately following the webinar. The team will also compose the biannual Style Report, as they typically do after each market, which will be released in early June.
Registration for the virtual Style Spotters LIVE! event is available on the Style Spotters hub page, https://www.highpointmarket.org/products-and-trends/style-spotters. The Style Spotters program is sponsored by Studio Designer.
