International Market Centers (IMC) has announced that six new, relocating and expanding resources, presenting a variety of design aesthetics and price points, will add to the 80+ exhibitors in Showplace for Spring 2021 High Point Market, June 5 – June 9, 2021.
“With its robust assortment of the latest and greatest in indoor and outdoor furnishings and décor, Showplace is among the most innovative destinations at High Point Market,” said Scott Eckman, IMC’s chief revenue officer. “Showplace is a key must-see for many Top 100 retailers, designers and buyers, as well as attendees looking for on-trend items.”
Three exhibitors are making their High Point Market debut in Showplace during Spring Market. Balta Home (rugs) is debuting in a 2,432-square-foot showroom; HB Home Furnishings (bar furniture, games, pool tables) is showing in a 1,366-square-foot space; and Orlena Home (bed cloths, fabrics, pillows, rugs, throws) is debuting in a 655-square-foot showroom.
“As a company focused specifically on the needs of furniture retailers and designers, we know exhibiting at High Point is critical to providing proper support to our existing network of dealers,” said Dan Pucci, senior director of sales for HB Home. “Although High Point has many different quality properties, we are absolutely thrilled to be in Showplace which is an incredible venue. HB Home is excited to see familiar faces, show off some great new designs, and embrace the High Point experience along with the rest of the industry!”
