HIGH POINT, N.C.–The High Point Market (@hpmarketnews) and the collaborative online community Decor Mentor (@decormentor) are co-hosting a Twitter Chat at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, which will preview new products for the upcoming spring show, April 20-25.
High Point Market exhibitors are invited to submit photos of their new April introductions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. Thursday, March 14. Submissions are limited to two photos per company.
The Decor Mentor ambassadors will curate a collection of their top picks on Twitter at 6 p.m. on March 20, using the official High Point Market hashtag #hpmkt. The ambassadors will also discuss 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 Decor Mentor curated selections will also be posted to a Pinterest board. A link to all of the Pinterest boards will be posted on Twitter throughout the chat.
“We had an amazing number of people log in to our last two Twitter chats,” said Cheminne Taylor-Smith, High Point Market Authority’s vice president of marketing. “In fact, we had such an overwhelming response last fall that we almost took down Twitter. This is a fast-paced event, and the addition of the Pinterest boards allows people to take more time with each of the product photos. This is one of the earliest, and most exciting ways, to see the newest trends and products before the April Market.”
