SALON at Market Square Sold Out For High Point Show

Furniture World News on

After a successful launch last High Point Market, MMPI announced that SALON is completely sold out with 46 exhibiting companies showing at the Fall High Point Market, October 16-21, 2010. SALON was part of a multi-phase renovation project at Market Square & Suites that included extensive physical improvements to the complex, a new web site and branding, and enhanced buyer and exhibitor services and amenities.
Each Market, a jury reviews current SALON exhibitors and prospective companies to select the best design-driven furniture, lighting, rugs, wall art, softgoods, and decorative accessories available in the marketplace.
“There really is no other place at High Point Market that focuses on bringing new companies to this market,” said Brian Bunch, vice president and assistant general manager for MMPI High Point. “As more and more of the temporary showrooms in High Point became permanent, we saw a great need to create an area targeted toward high-end, design-oriented companies interested in launching into this marketplace. As is evidenced by the response, SALON fits this need.”
