High Point Market's social media resource gets upgrade
Carole Sloan -- Casual Living, October 5, 2011
The High Point Market Authority has upgraded MyMarket, its social media and planning tool.
MyMarket allows market attendees to locate exhibitors, presentations and events, and to save selections for future reference in an itinerary. The social media resource can be accessed online to set up Market schedules and events, view contacts and exhibitors, send messages and schedule meetings.
MyMarket's mobile version, compatible with smart phones, iPads and other tablets, has been completely revamped to mirror the web version's functionality. Other updates to the tool include an RSS feed on the homepage, re-organization of the interface making finding information easier, new event grid views, alert messages and increased speed.
"MyMarket lets you get a head-start on your Market plans before you head to High Point, and then turns your smart phone into your personal portal during Market Week, so you can keep up with the incredible array of events and exhibitors on offer," said Cheminne Taylor-Smith, vice president of marketing, High Point Market Authority.
