High Point - The High Point Market Authority has unveiled an updated website designed to be more interactive and informative for market attendees.
The site at www.highpointmarket.org. now includes a MyMarket section, which allows attendees to customize their schedules by finding exhibitors, conference speakers and social events and saving that information for a personal itinerary. MyMarket is compatible with smartphones and iPads, and will enable users to link up with colleagues at market events.
Other new features include streamlined registration; travel discounts and codes for airlines, hotels and rental cars; an online hotel reservation system; the ability to comment on the site; and a planning section for international visitors.
The Marketing Center, a section design for exhibitors, features an overview of the market's communications program, an online media center, leasing contacts and access to the Exhibitor Marketing Kit and Web ad banner creation tool.
Brian Casey, president and CEO of the market authority, said the revamped site enriches the market's online presence. "The High Point Market is the premier home furnishings market, and it now has a website that reflects the market's position and its goal to provide the best tools and resources for our 85,000 exhibitors and attendees," he said.
The fall market runs Oct. 16-21.
