The Home Furnishings Association (HFA)’s Resource Center, located at Plaza Suites – #1-527, 222 S. Main Street, High Point, NC 27260, will be open Friday, April 1, 12-5 pm, Saturday, April 2 through Tuesday, April 5, 2022, from 8 am – 6 pm at High Point Market.

 

The HFA Resource Center was remodeled in 2020 with the design expertise of Connie Post, and this year got a furnishing makeover with the assistance of manufacturer partners Hooker Furniture (showrooms located at IHFC 10th Floor & 220 South Elm St), Surya (Showplace 4100), Ashley Furniture Industries (IHFC – H900, Hamilton, Floor 9), and Martin Furniture (Market On Green – 303, Floor 3).  

 

HFA provides access to critical operational resources through its relationships with more than sixty solution partners to meet the individual business needs of retailers, regardless of their size. The HFA Resource Center hosts over twenty-seven vendor partners and new this market, seventeen temporary exhibitor spaces. Visit the HFA Resource Center to connect and engage with experts in Point-of-Sale Systems, Financing, Digital Marketing, advertising logistics, and supply chain management companies. 

 

“Historically, our business only attended market to buy and didn’t wade into operational resources and services. I now see what a mistake that was. Not only did I get to see new offerings, but I also had the opportunity to tap into invaluable peer and industry-leading perspectives and go straight to the source with numerous onsite exerts representing our most critical service providers. 

 

Spending more time in the HFA space will be a new norm for me, and I really appreciate the great hospitality you provided while there.” Marcus S. Evans, COO, Evans Furniture Galleries, HFA Member since 1997.

 

HFA is committed to innovation and is thrilled to welcome Model No. as its featured exhibitor. Model No. is the only USA manufacturer that 3D prints furniture made from recycled materials.

 

Model No. CEO Philip Raub says, “As an emerging furniture brand, we are humbled to partner with HFA to showcase our modern furnishings and demonstrate the ways Model No. is influencing change within the industryThrough digital fabrication and additive manufacturing (3D printing),we are delivering products faster, with higher quality, and most importantly in a highly sustainable manner, all domestically in the US.”

 

HFA’s education seminars are also back at High Point Market with 15 retail business seminars, including industry icon Jerry Epperson’s annual State of the Industry address scheduled for 9:00 am – 10:00 am on Sunday, 4/3/2022 – 9:00-10:00 am in the HFA Resource Center’s Solution Room.
