Spring High Point Market postponed
The High Point Market Authority has announced the postponement of key US trade exhibition Spring High Point Market (originally scheduled for 25-29th April) until early June, should conditions around the coronavirus improve.
“The situation with Covid-19 has been evolving daily and we have been navigating business decisions based on concerns about the health and safety of our customers and employees, as well as the overall wellbeing of our industries,” says Bob Maricich, CEO of show owner International Market Centers (IMC). “While we had hoped to host all of our upcoming markets on their original dates, we are taking action to postpone the events in order to mitigate any issues related to this virus.
“We hope that this pause in our market schedules will ensure the safety and allow for normalcy to return to our industries. In the meantime, IMC_di, our newly formed digital innovation division, is exploring digital solutions to help our customers stay in contact while the physical market schedules are in flux.”
