High Point Market Announces Olioboard Contest to Select Style Spotter

HIGH POINT, N.C.-The High Point Market has partnered with Olioboard.com, the interior design online 2D and 3D moodboard creator, to develop a new contest to select a ninth Style Spotter.

At each High Point Market, the award-winning Style Spotters program selects home fashion trendsetters to showcase top market products and trends on Pinterest. The Spotters present exhibitors with signs that promote their selection and offer a QR code and URL for the market Pinterest board. Market attendees also participate by voting on the pinboards and products, by generating "likes" or by re-pinning.

"We wanted to have even more interaction with our home furnishings communities, and this crowd-sourcing contest will allow the market community to select our next Style Spotter," said Cheminne Taylor-Smith, vice president of the High Point Market Authority. "Olioboard is a perfect site for this contest because it allows members to create 2D and 3D room designs, while highlighting their own style viewpoint. Voters will be able to vote daily for the person that really showcases an eye for design, which is what the Style Spotters are all about."

Nominations for the ninth Style Spotter will be accepted through July 23 by filling out a form at http://olioboard.com/style_spotters_form. All nominees must have a social media presence, and must be a qualified attendee for the October High Point Market, such as an interior designer, a retailer, or a member of the media.
