10 things to do before going to High Point Market

Heading to High Point Market for the first time? Exciting! But before you dive into the whirlwind of furniture showcases and networking events, here are 10 things you should definitely do to make the most out of your experience.


Lace Up Those Comfortable Shoes: High Point Market is no small affair. With showrooms spanning vast areas, be prepared to clock in 12-15,000 steps a day. Take Zuo Modern, for instance, boasting a whopping 25,000 square feet of showroom space. That's a lot of ground to cover, so ensure your footwear is up to the task.


Dress for Comfort, Not Formality: Gone are the days of strictly formal attire. Feel free to rock those comfy shoes and dress in attire that allows you to move freely. Comfort equals productivity at the Market.


Fuel Up Along the Way: Food options around High Point Market might be limited, so seize the opportunity to refuel whenever you can. Many showrooms offer snacks and beverages, like Zuo's infamous "Barrio Hot Dogs" served with the best margaritas in town from Saturday to Tuesday, 1-3 pm.


Indulge and Enjoy: High Point Market isn't just about business; it's also about having a good time. Take advantage of the festive atmosphere and enjoy a drink or two while mingling with industry peers.


Pace Yourself: With so much excitement in every corner, it's easy to get carried away. Pace yourself, especially if you plan to indulge in celebrations like Zuo's launch of 130 new items. You don't want to burn out too soon!


Find Your Thrive: Each evening brings a plethora of events in various showrooms. Take the time to explore and find the ones that resonate with you. And if you're ever in need of a late-night drink, Zuo's doors are open until 10:00 pm.


Don't Forget Your Business Cards: In this digital age, the humble business card still holds its weight in gold. Make sure you bring plenty to exchange with potential collaborators and clients.


Take Notes and Write Quotes: With so many options to choose from, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Take the time to jot down notes and write quotes with your vendors. It not only helps you remember important details but also shows the factories that you're genuinely interested in their products.


Provide Feedback: High Point Market is a prime opportunity to provide feedback on the products you encounter. Your insights can help shape future designs and innovations in the industry.


Be Prepared for the Weather: High Point's weather can be unpredictable, so don't forget to pack an umbrella. You never know when you might need it to stay dry amidst sudden downpours.

With these 10 tips in mind, you're all set to conquer High Point Market like a seasoned pro. So lace up those shoes, grab your business cards, and get ready for an unforgettable experience in the world of furniture and design!
