HPMA Announces New Buyer Tour for Fall HP Market

High Point Market Authority (HPMA), sponsor and organizer of the High Point Furniture Market has again partnered with Soft Design Lab for the production of a new buyer tour for Fall Market Scheduled for October 22-26.

Developed with the intent of bringing new buyers to Market, the tour will include a multi-day schedule of showroom visits, educational events and networking opportunities, designed to provide participants with a multi-faceted, comprehensive view of the millions of square footage that is High Point Market.

Returning for its fourth Market, the “VIP #HPMKT Experience” is produced and hosted by industry experts Deb Barrett and Jackie Von Tobel of Soft Design Lab, an online base camp and creative community dedicated to providing advanced education on soft furnishings design and business. The 6-day, 5-night tour is geared towards those new to Market or who haven’t been within the past few years. Including four star accommodations, private luncheons and dinners, a multitude of showroom presentations, a daily educational schedule and a plethora of social and networking events, the tour provides a thorough and comprehensive introduction to Market.

Kathy Moran of Moran Interiors joined the tour for Spring Market 2016. “Making the trip to High Point was absolutely worth the time and effort for my business, but taking the VIP tour was what made it the game changer. The access we had on the tour and the new lines we were exposed to have already become a part of my business.  The tour truly changed the way I am running my business.”

Information about the VIP #HPMKT Experience with Soft Design Lab can be found at Follow the tour’s experience during Market through the Soft Design Lab’s social media and via the “#hpmktVIPtour” hashtag.
