Programs Targeting Hospitality Design Buyers Return to Fall High Point Market

High Point Market Authority announces the return of Hospitality at Market, featuring a lineup of educational and social programming for the hospitality design segment, during two days of the Fall Market, Oct. 23-24.

An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday evening, Oct. 22.

At the heart of the Hospitality at Market effort is a new program, Hospitality Experience, featuring exhibitor-sponsored showroom tours led by ambassadors and industry insiders Christi Barbour, David Cohen, Kelli Ellis, and Gary Inman. The complimentary tours are open to all members of the hospitality and design trades and will focus on various sectors of the industry such as custom, USA-made, sustainable products and boutique design.

A registration link and additional details will be shared in early September on the Hospitality at Market section of the High Point Market website.

High Point Market exhibitors which supply the hospitality design segment are invited to become a program or tour sponsor by contacting Stephanie Jonas at HPMA.

Contributing to the two-day event agenda is a steering committee powered top designers and industry executives, including Kelli Ellis, Ronati; Gary Inman, Gary Inman Interior Design; Debbie McKelvey, Bernhardt; Federico Contigiani, RHF Brands; Terri Schell, Overlees Contract Services; Lynda Welte, Blueprints for Green Design; Marco Martinez, Couture Jardin; Jason Phillips and Serena Martin, Phillips Collection; and Tom Conley, Tammy Nagem, Stephanie Jonas and Dan Davis of the Market Authority.

“It’s an outdated perception that High Point is a residential market because interior designers come here to source for commercial and hospitality projects,” said Inman, “High Point Market is a design destination, period.”

The Hospitality at Market Experience originated in 2016 to attract hospitality design buyers to the world’s largest furnishings trade show. It takes place on Sunday and Monday of each Fall Market. The event didn’t take place the past two years due to Covid-19 concerns.

Registration assistance or requests for additional information may be made by contacting Dan Davis at 336-869-1000 or
