High Point Market 2018



This is my first Highpoint experience and I am so excited! In the past, being a New Yorker with all of the wonderful resources we have here, I never felt the need to go. Things have changed over the past few years and an increasing number of manufacturers, designers from Metro areas and industry partners are all making the journey at least once per year.


For me, it happened organically. I have been asked to speak on two panel discussions as well as facilitate an ASID focus group. In addition, there is an HGTV Celebrity reunion – a private event hosted by Surya and I was also invited to a private dinner with the innovative marketing team of Hubbarton Forge.


Here’s what my calendar is looking like so far:


Friday

- Arriving in High Point, NC in the evening

Saturday

- “Passion Sucks” panel with Nick May, 11am

- Shop the Market

- ASID Focus Group, 3-4:30pm

- Hubbarton Forge Dinner, 7pm

Sunday

- “Tech Tools” panel with Luann Nigara, 12-1pm

- Shop the Market

- HGTV Celebrity Reunion event hosted by Surya, 4:30pm

Monday

- Shop the Market, half day

- Fly home


So, as you can see, my plate is very full and I still want to find time to visit some of the amazing showrooms where I have made appointments to meet with key people, network with my friends and colleagues and make new connections! Phew – I am tired already, just thinking about it!!!


I promise to report often via our social channels while at Highpoint to give those of you who cannot make it, a glimpse of what is happening. You can follow my journey this weekend on our Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter pages.


It is going to be amazing and I am excited to share it all with you.


If you are planning to be there, please let me know so we can connect live!!!
