“High Point Market is the premier opportunity for designers and retailers to source the unique furniture and décor items that bring great design to life,” said Scott Eckman, IMC executive vice president, chief revenue officer. “Expanded cross-category offerings this April make IMC’s High Point properties the top discovery destinations for buyers looking to take their projects and stores to the next level.”
