Registration Kicks Off Today for Fall High Point Market, October 14-18

HIGH POINT, N.C., July 18, 2023 – The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) —organizer and operator of the biannual High Point Market—kicks off online registration today for this fall’s five-day, trade-only event, taking place Oct. 14-18.

Registration for this season’s edition of the world’s largest furnishings trade show is open to U.S. and international buyers, including retailers, residential and commercial interior designers; exhibitor personnel, press, industry professionals and students.

Qualifying registrants will be issued a Market pass, which is required for entry into buildings and showrooms across the 13-block Market District. Guests who register prior to Sep. 29 (Sep. 15 for international attendees), will receive their Market pass in the mail. Registration assistance is available by contacting the High Point Market Authority directly at (336) 869-1000 during normal business hours (ET), or by emailing

All Market guests are encouraged to register early and contact the HPMA-sanctioned Market Concierge service by Travel Quest, Inc., to receive assistance securing the best options for overnight accommodations and flights, and to make other long-distance transportation arrangements.

“Early planning pays off in dividends for High Point Market guests,” says Tammy Nagem, HPMA president and CEO. “Our team is available to field any questions, and we’re eager to help make Market registration and travel planning a seamless experience.”

Further preparations are recommended for Market guests, such as setting showroom appointments directly with exhibitors, and then customizing an all-inclusive High Point Market schedule using the official High Point Market App. The user-friendly app developed by HPMA is downloadable to iOS and Android devices, as well as to desktop computers.

All programming and events marketwide, including this season’s entertainment headliners at Center Stage, will be listed in the High Point Market website’s online event calendar beginning in late July. Event details will auto populate in the customized MyMarket schedule when selected directly from the High Point Market App.

“After registering, we recommend planning ahead to take advantage of the many educational and networking opportunities available exclusively to our guests attending High Point Market,” adds Nagem. “Don’t miss the HPMA-organized events scheduled at The Point as well as the High Point Theatre, where our star-studded Keynote Series is held.”

New buyers may also plan early to secure a spot in one of the useful guided showroom tours offered by HPMA by visiting the High Point Market website later this month.

Online registration will remain open until 5pm ET on Oct. 11. Onsite registration is also available for a $30 processing fee. In both cases, guest passes will be available for pickup at one of 13 Market registration areas.
