We must meet State of North Carolina standards for safe operation
To make sure your representatives will be available to meet their customers while limiting the number of staff you must keep in your showrooms, we have worked with the International Home Furnishings Representatives Association (IHFRA), to separate domestic buyers and industry guests into two regions, based on the home state of their company headquarters. The Market periods they may attend are determined by this assignment:
Region A includes companies whose corporate offices are in the following states:
AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, HI, IA, ID, IL, IN, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SD, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV, WY
Region B includes companies whose corporate offices are in the following states:
AL, AR, FL, GA, KS, KY, LA, MO, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX
Your assistance is critical
This plan was supported by HFA, AHFA, and IHFRA as meeting the needs of buyers, exhibitors, and sales representatives. To make it as effective as possible, please:
- Do not admit anyone other than your staff and service providers to your showroom before 8am on Tuesday, October 13.
- Do not make any distribution decisions until the end of Market after all regions have had a chance to attend and view products.
- Staff your showroom according to the regions outlined above, to ensure your buyers can meet with their correct sales reps.
We realize that no plan works well for every individual and company, in every case. If any of your buyers, representatives, or staff have special considerations, please call 336.869.1000, and ask to speak with a Market Advisor.
Want help? Just ask.
The guidelines listed here are for general, Market-wide use. Please check with your building contact for guidance as you plan to create a safe and welcoming environment within your showroom.
