High Point Market previewing new products via Twitter chat

The High Point Market Authority (@hpmarketnews) and the collaborative community Decor Mentor (@decormentor) are once again co-hosting a Twitter chat at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, to preview new products for the upcoming fall market, held Oct. 19-24.

High Point Market exhibitors are invited to submit two photos of their new October introductions to info@decormentor.com by 5 p.m. (EST) Thursday, Sept. 19. Submissions are limited to two photos per company.

The Decor Mentor team will curate a collection of their top picks on Twitter during the chat, using the official High Point Market hashtag, #hpmkt. The team will also discuss new trends, fall 2013 market tips, events and more.

All product photos submitted for the chat will be featured on a Sneak Peek pinboard on the High Point Market's Pinterest page. The Decor Mentor curated selections will also be posted to a Pinterest board. A link to all of the Pinterest boards will be posted on Twitter throughout the chat.

"The number of new products submitted for the Twitter chat doubles at each subsequent High Point Market," Decor Mentor Founder Lisa Ferguson said. "With exhibitors now arranging their photography schedules around this fun sneak peek event, we expect that it will once again be trending bigger than ever.

"It's a chance like no other, to be the first to see what is debuting at fall market, before it goes global, and to connect with suppliers and peers. Decor Mentor is honored to once again curate this special Twitter chat for the High Point Market."
