Soon it will be time for designers, buyers, and the media to descend once again on the furniture capital of the USA, located right here in North Carolina - in an historic town called High Point! October will bring a slue of vendors and manufacturers to prep their showrooms and prepare to host soirees to swoon interior designers, buyers, and bloggers -- to buy and feature their showroom products in upcoming design projects, blog posts, social media sharing, and shops. Along with all the perfectly presented showrooms will be several engaging seminars, communicating and sharing design & retail business tips plus industry trends. The market trends will be featured and highlighted by this years High Point Authority's selected Style Spotters - and new this Fall season: the inaugural HPMKT Design Blogger Tour. Both groups, predominantly the Style Spotters, will be sharing their finds in real-time via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest, plus they will share products and showroom tours more in depth via blog posts.
