Furniture Markets

High Point Market

The High Point Market is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world, bringing more than 75,000 people to High Point, North Carolina every April and October. Serious retail home furnishings buyers, interior designers, architects, and others in the home furnishings industry can be found in High Point twice a year because if you can’t find it in High Point…it probably doesn’t exist.

 

Current demographics:

  • 180 buildings
  • 11.5 million square feet of show space
  • 75,000 attendees each market
  • More than 2,000 exhibitors
  • 100+ countries represented
  • Tens of thousands of new product introductions
  • Approximately 10% of attendees are international

 

New Fall 2020 Market Dates: October 13-21

To ensure the health and safety of our exhibitors and guests, High Point Market Authority has expanded Fall Market from five days to nine days. This will spread out attendance, and enable you to meet the reduced capacity requirements we expect to be in place for showrooms and buildings.

Nine-day Market will be divided into three, three-day periods
To further control the flow of attendees, our online registration system will ask buyers and industry guests to select one of three, 3-day periods as their primary attendance period:

Period I: October 13-15
Period II: October 16-18
Period III: October 19-21
Your assistance is critical
To make this plan as effective as possible, it is imperative that no building or showroom allow entry by any buyer or industry guest before 8am, October 13. Also, to prevent buyers from favoring earlier dates, we ask that you hold all distribution decisions until the end of Market after all regions have had a chance to attend and view product.Buyers and Industry Guests assigned to two geographic regions
To help minimize your staffing requirements, we have worked with the International Home Furnishings Representatives Association (IHFRA), to separate domestic buyers and industry guests into two regions, based on the home state of their company headquarters. The Market periods they may attend are determined by this assignment:
International buyers and media will be allowed to select from any of the three periods. Student passes will only be available during Period III. For all attendees, showroom appointments will be strongly encouraged.

We will also implement additional safety measures, such as increased sanitation and cleaning, social distancing requirements, and enhanced medical services, as your well-being remains our top priority. Further details will be shared as plans develop.

Please refer to our COVID-19 Updates section to see all current information.

We look forward to seeing you in High Point, October 13-21!
