Twitter Chat Previews Fall High Point Market

Monday August 27th, 2012 - 11:19AM

The High Point Market Authority and the collaborative online community Decor Mentor will co-host a second global Twitter chat on Tuesday, September 11, in a preview of new products for the upcoming fall market running from October 13-18. High Point Market exhibitors can submit photos of their product introductions to editorial@highpointmarket.org by Thursday, September 6 for consideration in the chat.

Decor Mentor ambassadors will curate a collection of their top picks on Twitter at 6 p.m. on September 11, using the official High Point Market hashtag #hpmkt. The ambassadors also will review new trends, market tips and events.

All product photos submitted for the chat will be featured on a Sneak Peek pinboard on the High Point Market’s Pinterest page. The High Point Market Authority also will post a curated selection of new products on a Pinterest board, which will grow throughout the chat.

“We had an amazing response to our first Twitter chat for the April Market,” said High Point Market Authority vp Cheminne Taylor-Smith. “We had such an overwhelming response that we almost took down Twitter. This market, we wanted to make the event faster paced, but still allow all exhibitors to participate. Adding the Pinterest boards to our sneak peek of Market products will make this a much bigger event and will allow participants to see a lot of new products before the upcoming market.”
