High Point Market Insider’s Tour
Spring market is almost here and we are ready for a road trip! High Point Market Authority along with Esteem Media have asked me to joint their team and lead an Insider’s Tour for new buyers/interior designers coming to market! Last market’s tours were so successful they are doing it again! Woot! And best part- it is free!
Is this for you?
Are you a designer who has yet to attend High Point Market or not been but once in the last two years? Have you been thinking of getting more into product sales? Maybe even opening a little boutique of your own? Or simply wanting to see what High Point has to offer?
Come join us! Liz and I will be answering questions, showing you some of our fave tried and true vendors to inspire your creativity as well as a couple of smaller companies who might just surprise you! We are trying to take you to vendors who are “designer friendly” and want your business!
Tap into our brains for a day!
We will also be answering questions about how to get set up with new vendors, the 3 most important questions to ask any vendor you meet and a few insider tips on how to navigate market without losing your sanity.
After our whirlwind tour on Saturday April 14th, we will leave you with a list of some additional faves you can visit on your own! This tour will be a great way to kick off market!
**You have to be new to market or have been only once in last two years to qualify ( click here to apply)
**The tour is Saturday April 14th 830 to 6ish
**We will be hosted by High Point Market Authority for a welcome coffee breakfast Saturday morning
*Plan to visit 5 or 6 not to miss showrooms, enjoy lunch at one of them and then also pick up another event or social activity
**We will be social ( oh wait- I said that one already and am probably not allowed to say I know where ALL the best social-ish places happen to be so will not say that out loud)
**The showrooms are not sponsors- these are vendors Liz and I work with every day in our shop and our design firm- I will make sure they will be able to answer all your questions and if they cannot- then I probably can!
**Of course you will need to get there and find lodging- and the fine folks at the Market Authority can help you with this too! No cost for the actual tour.
**Critical- You must want to have fun, sit on lots of great furnishings, touch soft velvets and gaze at pretty shiny things!
**Did I mention you get to meet Liz? And hang out with one of the smartest gals you will ever meet- ask her questions about freight, vendor relations- she is our go to for ops management and runs the show so she is a wealth of info for anyone wanting to know the underside of dealing with vendors!
Apply now! I am on pins and needles to see who will be joining us!
Most importantly you need to click here to apply before the tours fill up- March 20 is the deadline! Select Cheryl’s tour and send it in! And the reason for the short application is because of course you must be a verified legit buyer/designer in order to attend market in the first place! And it is ok if you have already registered to attend!
I know we are looking forward to it and were thrilled to be asked to lead one of the tours- naturally our ( ok- my) competitive spirit wants it to be a rocking good time with lots of great information, questions, camaraderie and fun!
