WithIt plans its popular Competitive Intelligence event during this month’s High Point Market, open to all market attendees, on Thursday, October 19 at 6:00 p.m., in the Market on Green building, Suite 202, at 212 East Green Street. Impact Consulting Services and Furniture Fan will co-host the event, which includes a wine reception. The theme for the October 2006 session, “It’s a Material World,” will focus on new finishes, textures, fabric, unusual materials, and “green” design components. Moderator Kathy Wall, president, The Media Matters, Inc., and 2006 president of WithIt, will lead a group of panelists who will discuss notable trends each has observed during the preceding days of the Market. Of special interest will be their reports on the use of new textures, fabrics, and mixed media materials in furniture production, as well how the growing design movement using “green” materials is being embraced by manufacturers exhibiting at High Point Market. This year’s panelists include Betty Lyn Eller, advertising manager for O at Home magazine, Lorna Hunter, general manager for contemporary retailer, Cantoni, and Mike Hodges, international sales for Valspar.
