High Point Market is networking heaven
High Point Market is the preeminent trade show for designers—but that isn’t just because of the millions of square feet of showrooms (though you definitely need to make a point to see many of those). With a big name in the industry around every corner, the networking opportunities are endless.
Darla even got to hug Taylor Spellman.
Pretty awesome, right? It also gives you many opportunities to put your brand out there. Karina Jones, Wingnut’s Producer, had the wonderful idea to pass out Little Debbie Cakes in boxes labeled with a Wingnut Sticker and a business card. What a genius marketing idea.
AND people tagged Wingnut on social media eating their Little Debbie Cakes! So fun.
Panelists are giving of their time and advice
High Point Market is packed full of learning opportunities. Not only are the panels educational for listeners—but for the panelists as well! Panelists are down-to-earth open-books who are willing to share their successes and their mistakes to help you learn.
Why not take advantage of their wealth of knowledge and experience?
Darla and Natalie left the market with a little bit of a high-point hangover…and an overwhelming feeling of abundance. Even if you’ve been in business a short time or 20+ plus years you will learn something at High Point.
Listen to the full minisode that is jam-packed full of useful tips and tricks for attending High Point and everything Darla and Natalie learned!
