Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, October 2, 2013
HIGH POINT — The High Point Market's showcase of American-made product is back with a number of new faces.
At the Oct. 19-24 market, 60 companies - including 33 new exhibitors - will display their wares in the Made in America Pavilion on the top floor of the Suites at Market Square. The 25,000-square-foot Pavilion is devoted solely to domestically produced goods.
"As consumer demand for domestically produced products has grown, so has the Made in America Pavilion, which was launched just two years ago. This market we have 33 new exhibitors in the Pavilion, and more than 50 domestic resources for buyers to shop. This is the one place at High Point Market where you will find a collection of product across all categories, all produced in the USA," said Julie Messner, vice president of leasing for International Market Centers, which operates the Suites at Market Square.
"For many retailers and designers, offering domestically produced merchandise has moved from a trend in the marketplace to an absolute expectation by their customers to present American-made options. This carefully dedicated area in the Suites at Market Square allows that sourcing to happen effortlessly."
