Monday, October 10, 2011 - The High Point Market has recruited home fashion trendsetters to showcase their favorite products and top trends at the October show. The Style Spotters will post and curate their favorite looks on Pinterest, a website that lets users organize and share photos on virtual pinboards.
Style Spotters – who are bloggers and/or interior designers – will capture images of their favorite finds as they walk the High Point Market and will list the exhibitor name and showroom number with the photo. The trendsetters also will present the exhibitor with a sign that highlights the Style Spotter’s name and a QR code and URL for the Pinterest board.
Every Market attendee can also be participant in the Market Pinterest event. You can vote on the best pinboards and products for each Style Spotter by generating “likes” or by re-pinning photos to your own Pinterest board. At the end of Market, the most popular pinboard will win that Style Spotter a free trip to the April High Point Market.
You can also pin your own favorite products and trends to a live-streaming pinboard using the Market’s official Twitter hashtag #hpmkt. For more information, or to view the Market pinboard, go to: www.highpointmarket.org/stylespotters.
