Registration for the Spring 2021 High Point Market is now open for home furnishings buyers, international buyers, exhibitors, trade/industry, press, and students. Scheduled for June 5-9, interested attendees can register online at www.highpointmarket.org/register.
Originally scheduled for April, the new Spring Market dates for June were announced this past December in anticipation of an improving pandemic situation, vaccine availability, and less travel restrictions, in addition to an improving supply chain situation, which has greatly impacted the industry for the past several months.
Spring Market also ushers in a return to the typical five-day schedule, Saturday through Wednesday, for the trade show. The Fall 2020 Market was expanded this past October to nine days as a safety measure, but that will not be repeated.
With the exception of additional days, the High Point Market Authority anticipates a return of all safety measures that were in place this past fall. The #HPMKTsafe Initiative for spring 2021 includes mandatory face coverings, reduced capacity restrictions, daily health checks, and a number of other precautions. More details can be found at www.highpointmarket.org/hpmktsafe.
“This pandemic has given witness to the resiliency of our industry, and we’re thrilled the resources here in High Point have been a vital lifeline in the effort to keep our industry moving forward,” says Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority. “We look forward to welcoming even more industry members back to Market in 2021.”
Online registration will remain open until June 9, but attendees are encouraged to register by May 21 (May 7 for international attendees) so their pass can be mailed in advance. Questions can be directed to (336) 869-1000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
