In its second week, High Point Virtual Market gave the furniture industry access to programming, product discovery and a sense of community as they have dealt with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to host International Market Centers.
The third and final week of the virtual market runs May 26 to May 29, with a detailed schedule available at www.imchighpointmarket.com.
Week two featured the launch of IMC’s first-ever Virtual Showhouse. The project included six well-known designers using products developed by IMC exhibitors to create ideal rooms. The Virtual Showhouse comes fully to life in a week three webinar titled “Virtual Showhouse– Build the Room Designer Discussion,” running on Thursday, May 28, at 1 p.m. During the hour-long presentation, designers Libby Landgon of Libby Langdon Interiors, Corey Damen Jenkins of Corey Damen Jenkins & Associates, and Jason Oliver Nixon of Madcap Cottage, will detail the ideas and inspirations they applied in making their living room, library/home office and dining room selections.
“We’ve seen record levels of engagement on IMC’s website as well as strong and consistent use of Catalog Connexion as a sourcing alternative during the first two weeks of the High Point Virtual Market Experience,” said Bob Maricich, IMC CEO. “As we head into the week three, we look forward to continued participation in our final slate of digital programming and offerings.”
