High Point Market Preview on Twitter

The High Point Market Authority and online interior design collaborative community Decor Mentor will again host a global Twitter Chat at 6 p.m. (Eastern) on Wednesday, Sept. 17.

High Point Market exhibitors are invited to submit a total of two photos of their new October introductions to Decor Mentor by 5 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday, Sept. 11. Submissions are limited to two photos per company.

The Decor Mentor team will curate a collection of their top picks for the  Sept. 17 Twitter Chat, using the official High Point Market hashtag, #hpmkt. The team also will discuss new trends, Fall 2014 Market tips, events and more. Visit here for a complete overview of this event.

All product photos submitted for the Chat will be featured on a Sneak Peek pinboard on the High Point Market’s Pinterest page. The Decor Mentor curated selections will also be posted to a Pinterest board. A link to all of the Pinterest boards will be posted on Twitter throughout the Chat.
