Buyers and Industry Guests assigned to two geographic regions
To make sure representatives will be available to meet their customers while limiting the staff exhibitors must keep in their showrooms, we have worked with the International Home Furnishings Representatives Association (IHFRA), to separate domestic buyers and industry guests into two regions, based on the home state of their company headquarters. The Market periods they may attend are determined by this assignment:
Region A includes companies whose corporate offices are in the following states:
AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, HI, IA, ID, IL, IN, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SD, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV, WY
Region B includes companies whose corporate offices are in the following states:
AL, AR, FL, GA, KS, KY, LA, MO, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX
International buyers and media will be allowed to select from any of the three periods. Student passes will only be available during Period III. For all attendees, showroom appointments will be strongly encouraged.
Your assistance is critical
To make this plan as effective as possible, we have asked all buildings and showrooms not to admit anyone other than their own staff before 8am on October 13. Please do not request entry before that time. We have also asked exhibitors to not make any distribution decisions until the end of Market after all regions have had a chance to attend and view products.
We will also implement additional safety measures, such as increased sanitation and cleaning, social distancing requirements, and enhanced medical services, as your well-being remains our top priority. Further details will be shared as plans develop.
We look forward to seeing you at Fall 2020 High Point Market!
