Google Strategist, Prominent Designer to Speak at April Market

The High Point Market Authority is partnering with the Home Furnishings Assn. and the American Society of Interior Designers to being a pair of keynote speakers to the April market.

One session will feature Robin Wilson, founder of the design firm Robin Wilson Home, while Google strategist and market development manager Andrew Leonard will headline the second event.

Both presentations are scheduled for Saturday, April 22 – the opening day of market – in the High Point Theater.

“In reviewing attendee feedback, we’ve learned that education is one of the top three reasons buyers come to High Point Market,” said Tom Conley, president and CEO of the Market Authority. “We strive to consistently provide our buyers with engaging programs that explore the essential components they need to enhance and elevate their businesses. This Keynote Series is an exciting opportunity for us to showcase relevant experts who have vital information to share with the home furnishings industry.”

Wilson’s presentation, “Design Disruption: How Wellness and Sustainability is More Than a Trend,” begins at 12 noon and is co-sponsored by ASID. A complimentary box lunch is provided, and 1 CEU credit is available.

Leonard’s presentation, “Turn Web Traffic into Foot Traffic: Google Shows How to Win the Moments that Win Customers,” begins at 3 p.m. and is co-sponsored by HFA.

Both sessions are open to all Market attendees with a valid Spring Market pass. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each session. Additional information about Keynote Series can be found at
