An Industry-wide Endeavor, An Individual Choice
Conley said he hopes the industry appreciates in these unprecedented times that it’s not just HPMA’s efforts, but HPMA, the exhibitors, and building owners all working together to make the Market safe and welcoming to those buyers who feel comfortable coming and who aren’t exhibiting potential signs of the virus.
“If somebody doesn’t feel right, we don’t want them to come,” he said. “If someone feels uncomfortable about leaving their home or their office, then don’t come to Market.
“But if you feel as though your business demands it, and you feel comfortable traveling, when you get to High Point, you’ll be impressed with how clean the venues are and with all of the precautions that are being taken to make sure the environment here is as safe as it could possibly be.”
If you do decide to attend, the Market Authority advises you to review the special registration for this Market. Be sure to have your passes mailed to you before you leave for High Point, and make appointments with all of the showrooms you wish to see.
