HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The Premarket Committee has cancelled next week's Premarket event, scheduled for March 16-17 amid concern and uncertainty created by the Coronavirus.
All 17 sponsoring companies participated in the decision and committee members unanimously voted to cancel the event.
Sponsoring exhibitors for spring 2020 include:

Premarket takes place each spring and fall, about 6 weeks in advance of High Point Market. Each sponsoring exhibitor commits to providing a near market-ready amount of product. They also pool resources to bring selected retailers for a preview of goods and the opportunity for final tweaking of product details. The event is organized by a committee of sponsoring showrooms, who then contracts with the High Point Market Authority to provide strategic direction, staffing, and logistical support.
