MyMarket: High Point Market

Posted by



It’s almost time for High Point Market!  I always get so excited this time of year.  Not only do I get to see all the fabulous new creations from all the exhibitors, I get to reconnect with with many great friends!  Designers, bloggers, manufacturers.  High Point is ground zero in my universe. 


Spring Market is happening April 2-7 this year.  As part of my visit to High Point, I will be participating in the MyMarket video series.  Six market constituents (exhibitor/retailer/student/interior designer/blogger/Market representative) will video record a “day in the life of their market.”  I’m honored to be participating as the Interior Designer.  I’ll be taking you all over market to see my favorite showrooms and people.  The video will go live on April 6.  Stay tuned to my blog for the link! 

While I’m in High Point, I’m also participating in “Marketing Yourself by Design.”  This event is co-Sponsored by ASID and Editor at Large.

I will be part of an in-depth experience where our panel of experts will provide pointers and tips for marketing yourself online through blogging, email outreach, social media, and more. Other panelists include Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan from Apartment Therapy; Michelle Adams of Lonny Magazine; Brian Patrick Flynn author of Décor Demon; and Margot Austin editor of Canada’s Style at Home.

Following the one-hour presentation, sign up for 15-minute intensive tutoring sessions that put you one-on-one with nationally acclaimed bloggers and online gurus like me along with Jeanine Hayes of Afro Chic; Marisa Marcantonio of  StyleBeat; and Brian Patrick Flynn of Décor Demon.

The presentation is open to all, but tutoring sessions are limited and open on a first-come-first-served basis.

  1. Tobi: I will be there, and will mention it when I finish my Navigating High Point Furniture market post. Its an edited version of a post I did for Brooke Giannetti’s “Velvet and Linen” last October. You are the big event. I am surprised there are no reservations. Send me an e-mail if you have any other great suggestions. I’ll keep adding.
