Looking Ahead to October Market
Exclusive Tours for IDS Clients Will Continue
Are you planning (or considering) attending High Point Market this October 13-17? We want to know!

Save time and skip the hassle of planning your schedule. As an IDS client, you are invited to join us at High Point for four days of prescheduled exclusive showroom tours led by an IDS tour representative and our local sales reps.

October may seem like the distant future, but it is never too early to plan. We're working on the details for our October schedule and we want to know what you want to do and see at Market:
  • What days do you plan on attending?
  • What showrooms are you most interested in touring?
  • Are you interested in attending networking, continuing education and speaking events when you go? 
  • Anything else?  Send your input to Emily Fitzgerald. 

Are you interested in what we did for the last market? This link will allow you to view last April's tour schedule for reference. 


Lastly, if you have never been to Market and want more information on why you should go, you can contact Emily or read more about High Point on their website.


Certain restrictions apply. Please see sales flyer for details.
Must request sale when placing order.
