High Point Market Refreshes Media Center Dubbed MediaLink
The High Point Market Authority has teamed with the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA), the American Society of Furniture Designers (ASFD) and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) to design a new media center called MediaLink for the upcoming Fall Market, Oct. 17-22.
“Our goal with these three partnerships is to equip media coming to Market with the resources they need and want to tell the important stories impacting the home furnishings industry,” said Tom Conley, president of the High Point Market Authority. “High Point Market provides the largest opportunity for media and buyers to see new products and upcoming trends first hand. The new MediaLink will provide quick and easy access to this information, while also being a resource for other stories impacting this multi-billion dollar industry.”
MediaLink visitors can expect to find many updated features including on-site access to online exhibitor profiles with contact information, company descriptions and downloadable product images. Access to information will be readily available, including real-time social media feeds and a digital archive of new products debuting at Market.
“The size and complexity of the High Point Market make it both exhilarating and challenging for journalists,” said Pat Bowling, vice president of communications for AHFA. “AHFA has always strived to provide resources that make it easier for writers to identify and cover the Market’s top trends, and our presence in the new MediaLink aligns well with that mission.”
MediaLink opens to press attendees on Oct. 16 at 7 a.m. in the High Point Theatre in the Transportation Terminal.
