TrendWatch Programming to Highlight Top 3 Trends at Spring High Point Market
DesignOn HPMKT by IMC will explore its Spring 2022 TrendWatch through series of five virtual and at-market presentations and guides beginning with the “TrendWatch: Spring 2022 Webinar” today. IMC’s trend forecast program will feature three themes – Elation, Growth and Synthesis – for Spring High Point Market.
“For the first time, TrendWatch explores how seemingly different trends are actually related via the moments in time that shape them,” said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC executive vice president, chief customer and marketing officer. “Through our interactive virtual and in-person programming, designers and retailers will learn what is trending for this High Point Market, and be challenged to consider how popular colors, construction and aesthetics are a comment on current events.”
DesignOn HPMKT by IMC – International Market Centers’ (IMC) programming and social media presence at High Point Market – offers buyers multiple opportunities to learn about the connected Spring 2022 TrendWatch trends. Curator Julie Smith Vincenti of Chicago-based Nine Muses Media, who has 25 years of experience in magazine editing and home furnishings trends forecasting, will offer a webinar, a seminar and a tour.
In preparation for market sourcing, Vincenti leads a pre-market webinar, “TrendWatch: Spring 2022 Webinar” on Wednesday, March 16 at 1 p.m. EDT. The image-rich, fast-paced program will address how consumer preferences, shifting priorities and new expectations for 2022 will influence interior décor and product designs. Attendees of the free, one-hour webinar will earn 1 CEU. Registration is at https://imcenters.zoom.us/webinar/register/3516443438814/WN_dOJlssUQQj6EyddtLhXO2A.
At-market, Vincenti reprises the program in “TrendWatch: Spring 2022 - LIVE at Market!” on Saturday, April 2 at 1:30 p.m. in the DesignOn HPMKT by IMC Seminar Room at Suites at Market Square.
