24 Oct Diary of a #hpmkt Virgin
Posted at 18:52h in Blog 0 CommentsThe thought of attending High Point Market to navigate 180 buildings, 11.5 million square feet of show space, along with 75,000 attendees to shop for furniture in just two and a half days was daunting, to say the least. So daunting, in fact, this past weekend was my first time ever, along with my friend and colleague, Meredith, another newbie. I had never made the trek because I was always too busy with clients, had my go-to lines that served me well, didn't want to take time away from the family and had heard how overwhelming market is. Thankfully High Point has been doing this since 1909 and has gotten it down to a science with an online planning guide, shuttles that take you everywhere, information booths galore and the MyMarketApp for your mobile device.
