Style Spotters Event Goes Virtual!
Preparing for their biannual Style Spotters LIVE! event, which typically occurs in person towards the end of each Market, the 2020 Style Spotters will conduct this fall’s panel discussion virtually via Zoom on Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 2:00 p.m. EST.
Style Spotters LIVE! is a long-standing High Point Market tradition combining product insights, trend predictions, and an overview of launches and introductions via a panel discussion and live scrolling through Pinterest boards the Style Spotters have created while spotting products around Market. Given the virtual format and its timing after Market, this cycle’s panel discussion will highlight pre-selected product favorites from team members across several product categories.
Throughout Fall Market, the Style Spotters team of eight were tasked with scouring the multitude of product offerings within showrooms to highlight what’s trending as well as to identify what’s up and coming for the industry heading into 2021. Half the team was able to travel to Fall Market to peruse and spot products in person, whereas the remaining team members tuned in virtually, scheduling showroom appointments via Zoom, utilizing the Market Authority’s digital resources, and monitoring social media.
Moderated by Style Spotters Advisors, Gary Inman and Shay Geyer, registration for Style Spotters LIVE! is available at www.highpointmarket.org/events/ss-live. The event and the Style Spotters program are sponsored by Studio Designer.
A compilation of the products spotted by the Market Authority’s trend-tracking team can be found on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/stylespottersfa20/high-point-market-style-spotters-fall-2020/.
The team is also in the process of developing their biannual Style Report, as they typically do after each Market. It will be ready for release in early December.
