International Market Centers has announced that it is bringing a new series of design and trend-focused educational programming to High Point this April. The Spring High Point Market, which runs from April 18 to 23, will offer attendees a seminar lineup that provides opportunities to learn from and connect with many of the industry’s leading designers and get ahead of the curve on industry trends, according to IMC.

Karen Olson, IMC senior vp/marketing, said in introducing the seminar lineup, “We look for design leaders who provide a diversity of knowledge and expertise— whether it’s a design icon like Nina Campbell, an industry innovator like Windsor Smith or a trend expert like Apartment Therapy’s Maxwell Ryan— to help deliver cutting-edge, relevant and tangible information that attendees can apply to their business.”
