Adapting to a Changing Industry: Exclusive Panel at High Point Market

During the HPMKT, House Tipster is partnering with Zuo Modern and some of the industry’s best professionals to discuss the ways we must adapt to changes in retail, tech, and more.



The interior and product design industry looks a lot different today than it did just a decade ago.


There’ve been major advancements in technology, with the Internet changing the way consumers view our work and buy our products. There are also evolving consumer demands to attend to, revolving around the rise of the Millennial consumer base and the need to include experience, engagement-based retail experiences online and offline.


Yes, design and style trends are ever-evolving, but so are the fundamental ways all of us have been doing business over the years. It’s a lot to swallow.


It’s obvious that the industry is changing, but what’s not so clear is how we adapt to these changes.


That’s why we’re partnering with key influencers at High Point Market for the exclusive panel: How to Adapt to a Changing Industry. We believe that the key to surviving these fast and furious changes is by working together to share ideas and forge a path forward.
