The High Point Market Authority, in collaboration with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the Home Furnishings Association (HFA), has announced the Keynote Series for the Spring Edition of High Point Market 2017 between April 22 – 26, 2017. This educational series will bring two keynote speakers to High Point Market, each with a different focus geared towards the various types of buyers that typically attend Market, namely retailers and interior designers.
Both sessions will occur on the opening day of Market, Saturday, April 22, in the High Point Theatre. Teaming up with multiple associations for the events, these sessions seek to enhance a buyer’s Market experience with timely, relevant and forward-thinking topics.
“In reviewing attendee feedback, we’ve learned that education is one of the top three reasons buyers come to High Point Market,” commented Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority.
“We strive to consistently provide our buyers with engaging programs that explore the essential components they need to enhance and elevate their businesses. This Keynote Series is an exciting opportunity for us to showcase relevant experts who have vital information to share with the home furnishings industry,” added Tom Conley.
The first Keynote Series session will count with the participation of Robin Wilson, a very well known designer and founder of Robin Wilson Home. Wilson is also the chief creative officer of the licensing division of Robin Wilson Home, which has generated over $80 million in branded revenue from textiles and cabinetry since 2010.
The second Keynote Series session will feature Google’s Strategist and Marketing Development Manager, Andrew Leonard, who will present new ideas of how retailers can use digital tools to boost store traffic and he will also answer some questions raised by the audience.
