ANDMORE expands offerings for Fall 2023 High Point Market

ANDMORE, formerly International Market Centers, at High Point Market will offer buyers expanded resources and programming at the Fall 2023 High Point Market, Oct. 14-18.

ANDMORE’s 17 downtown properties will feature 1,000 permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits, including the launch of Shoppe Object @ High Point, and present more than 30 educational and networking events before, during and after the five-day market.

“We are excited to debut the ANDMORE at High Point Market brand and to provide buyers with a plethora of resources, programming and amenities to make the most of their time at the October market,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of ANDMORE. “New brands and new partnerships, as well as the exciting launch of Shoppe Object at High Point Market, make this a must-attend buying event this fall.”

ANDMORE at High Point Market offers retailers and designers access to 600+ permanent showrooms and 350-plus temporary exhibits in 17 buildings across High Point.

Fall Market showroom highlights include new, expanded and relocated resources at IHFC, North Hamilton and SAMS across all major categories.

New in temporaries for Fall 2023 is the launch of Shoppe Object at High Point Market, showcasing a curated collection of 100 temporary exhibitors, Oct. 14-18 at the Historic Market Square. Mirroring the vibe and verve of Shoppe Object New York, the High Point edition aims to showcase artisan-quality and design-led home décor products in gallery-like displays. More than half of the exhibitors will be making High Point debuts, bringing new brands to High Point.

Programming and buyer hospitality

Nearly 20 seminars, webinars and at-market tours will take place at High Point Market this fall. Guided tours will showcase highlights: SAMS “Suite Spots,” top lighting resources, made-in-America product, home décor brands and a Shoppe Object overview. ANDMORE at High Point Market’s popular social media takeover, hosted by a slate of “Market Pros” also returns for October. Partnerships in programming include keynote speakers Erin and Ben Napier, Sherwin-Williams, Science in Design, ASID, Business of Design and more.

ANDMORE at High Point Market also will host a series of buyer amenities at SAMS, IHFC, InterHall and other select market locations. Offerings include floor bars, afternoon fall treats and drinks buyers’ breakfasts, coffee and sweets, a Festive Fall Party and daily afternoon specialty cocktails. Details will be announced soon.


ANDMORE’s TrendWatch program will showcase current home décor and design trends through a collection of ANDMORE at High Point Market exhibitor products.

Trends will be brought to life in two at-market product displays, an on-site seminar and a pre-market webinar. A special companion guide — available digitally and in print — will detail the trends and exhibitor product selected by Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media.

Eight weeks of top product picks will be featured online prior to Market in ANDMORE’s Market Snapshot program. An on-site display will showcase a sampling of this cycle’s Market Snapshot finalists, and pre-market judging via social media will determine the “People’s Choice” winners in several categories.
