For many, navigating the High Point Market can be daunting. Over 200 buildings scattered all over town is probably the biggest hurdle. I'm quite sure it's impossible to see it all, possibly even in a lifetime of "markets". And most seasoned designers don't even attempt it.
They have an impressive transportation system, and it all centers at the bus terminal right in front of the IHFC building. Constant bus traffic delivering designers and store owner/buyers from hotels in High Point, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and other neighboring communities.
One thing i've noticed is that if it's raining or bad weather, most buyers seem to congregate here in the IHFC and Showplace buildings. During good weather, they're everywhere, but no question - these two buildings (of the 200+ full of showrooms) get the vast majority of the traffic.
Except for my first year at market, I've always shown in IHFC. Although I'm quite interested in adding a showing in the beautiful Showplace building as well.
We are showing in on the 3rd floor (green wing) of IHFC with ShawLiving, and new to this market on the 8th floor (D-820) with Ekornes/Stressless.
