High Point Market - Board Approves Market Date Change

High Point Market

High Point, NC, October 14, 2015 – The Executive Committee for the High Point Market Authority met recently and voted to uphold the Board of Director’s decision to change the official Market dates. Beginning in Spring 2016, High Point Market will open on its regular day of Saturday, but will close on Wednesday instead of Thursday. Discussion on the subject began when the Executive Committee presented a proposal to the Board of Directors during their April 2015 meeting. Their recommendation was based on conversations with several retailers and exhibitors in multi-tenant buildings. The Board unanimously approved the proposal, but it was decided that the final decision would be postponed until a more comprehensive survey of exhibitors could occur. Over 85% of exhibitors responding to the one question survey agreed with the decision to eliminate Thursday as the last day of Market.


High Point Market Authority Announces Date Change for Fall Market 2016

High Point Market

High Point, NC, October 14, 2015 – The High Point Market Authority is announcing a date change for the upcoming Fall 2016 High Point Market. In light of the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur on Tuesday, October 11, and Wednesday, October 12, the Fall 2016 Market has been moved from the original dates of October 15 – 19, 2016, to October 22 – 26, 2016. The 2016 Market dates were originally chosen in 2007 and, as is protocol, were reviewed and approved by clergy from the major religions. Since then, however, Market trends and buyer activity has changed, pushing sales rep training to earlier in the week leading up to Market, thus creating a conflict. Out of respect for the Jewish calendar and those observing the holiday who travel to and work Market, the decision was made to move the dates by a week.
