High Point Market in North Carolina is the biggest furniture trade show of the year and I'm thrilled not only to be attending for the first time this weekend, but to have been asked to be part of the program!
I'll be flying down South bright and early tomorrow morning for what I hear is a whirlwind of an experience. Here's a little recap of what I'll be up to.
As soon as I arrive, I'll be heading to the Drexel Heritage showroom where my good friend Dana Hughes from Clairemont Communications will be hosting a fun event and videotaping me and others for the Drexel blog. Then it's off to a lovely Saturday night dinner (I hear Market is all about the dinners and parties anyway!).
Sunday morning I'm speaking on a panel produced by The Editor At Large titled, "Getting Your Projects Published Today - Unconventional Tips from Media Experts." I'll be representing digital publications along side editors from Veranda, Traditional Home and super successful blog, Design Therapy. If you're around, please stop by: Showplace West, 100 High @ 12:00pm!
After the panel, I'll make my way to the Century Furniture showroom for a tweet-up event with a some of my favorite twitter friends! My dear gal Shay Geyer of the Dallas Morning News will be hosting the event - be sure to RSVP here!
Then, before catching a Monday afternoon flight back home, I'll be attending a press breakfast where industry leader Bunny Williams will be talking about "The Tyranny of Trends." I'm extremely excited about the opportunity to meet Bunny, a true design icon of our day, and can't wait to hear what she has to say on this topic!
If you'll be at Market too and would like to meet up, the best way to get in touch with me is through twitter: @CrystalG_ Hope to see you there! Have a lovely weekend everyone!!! xo, Crystal
