The High Point Market Authority is collaborating with the Trade Only Design Library (TODL) to bring the High Point Market experience online year-round for buyers and sellers.

“High Point’s attendees and exhibitors are increasingly internet-savvy and extensive users of mobile devices,” said Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority. “Our partnership with TODL significantly extends the High Point Market experience online and strengthens the ability to leverage the resources of High Point Market before, during and after market.”

Exhibitors can extend their physical market showrooms through TODL in the form of online product catalogs. Attendees can search upcoming market offerings through a variety of filters and thus have a better idea of where they want to visit during the markets. It is also possible to construct project folders and preferred vendor lists in order to organize product research.

"The new TODL platform is based on 15 years of experience servicing the trade exclusively [and] is finely tuned to the challenges of professional commerce, which is a significantly different experience than e-commerce for consumers,” said Stacey Tiveron, TODL’s founder and CEO. “[Our] focus on the unique online and mobile needs of professional buyers and sellers puts us on the same mission as the High Point Market. This enables us to align our in-person and online resources seamlessly to benefit High Point’s attendees and exhibitors.”

TODL already features more than $46 billion worth of design-industry specific products, including a number of High Point exhibitors. The goal is to include the full catalogs of all qualified High Point exhibitors on the TODL platform by the Fall 2015 High Point Market. Potential exhibitors can register online or call (800) 631-3111. Interested design industry and retail purchasers can register for a free TODL membership online.
