Find New Design Resources
High Point Market allows attendees to experience the latest trends and find inspiration from the industry’s top brands. The event’s large cross-category displays of products exposes attendees to cross-merchandising strategies that align with today’s lifestyle consumer. The breadth and depth of products available offer endless opportunities.
With more than 2,000 furniture, home décor and accessories exhibitors, High Point Market always presents a fresh assortment of products and resources to help you set yourself apart from your competition. There are new companies entering the market every year, and the best way to find them is at Market.
High Point Market provides an opportunity to meet with multiple vendors at the same time in one location. Many of the showrooms and exhibitors offer specials that are only available during the event, which can save designers money if they’re looking for a specific product with a fixed price point.
