HIGH POINT – High Point x Design and High Point Market Authority are partnering for the inaugural Vacation Rental Design (VRD) Summit, to be held April 20-21, 2023, in conjunction with the spring High Point Market.
The Vacation Rental Design Summit is created specifically for vacation rental designers and related businesses, leveraging resources from the City of High Point’s home furnishing industry and calling for bringing together innovative brands, industry leaders opinion and designers. Focused on education, sourcing, inspiration and trends in the vacation rental market, one takeaway is how a well-designed vacation rental and its marketing impact profitability and deliver a return on investment.
“It’s not residential design. This is not the conception of hospitality. Vacation rental design cultivates a luxury experience in a residential setting while anticipating the needs of the guest, owner, property management and housekeeping,” said interior designer Jessica Duce. , founder of JDuce Design and co-owner of Vacation Rental Designers. “There is no other design niche like this.”
Jane Dagmi, Managing Director of HPxD, added, “With the amount of manufacturing brands and resources in our city, there’s no better place to host the VRD Summit. High Point’s legacy is widely known as “the furniture capital of the world,” but it’s more than furniture; it is a year-round design destination for our industry.
Tammy Nagem, new president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority, sees the opportunity for the High Point Market. “High Point is familiar with organizing large events and is also used to meeting the changing needs of the furniture industry. We are uniquely qualified to host this event both in terms of the infrastructure surrounding High Point Market, but also in terms of the resources we have here for designers who dive into this niche.
