Arrival Process

  • Daily Arrival Times

    • Showroom Tenants, Exhibitors and their staff will be encouraged to arrive between 6:00 AM and 8:30 AM to complete their temperature checks. 
    • Buyers and other attendees should arrive after 9:00 AM. 
  • All attendees will clear a daily health & temperature check and be issued a wristband each day. This health check will include a no-contact temperature check and answering verbal health questions to screen for COVID symptoms. Anyone who refuses to be temperature checked, anyone with a temperature above 100.4°F (after completing a secondary screening), or anyone who refuses to wear a mask or follow proper physical distancing requirements will be denied entry.In the event that someone tests over 100.4°F or has any indication of symptoms, they will be encouraged to go directly to the HPMA tent (set up in the Showplace parking lot by the bus terminal).  At the tent, medical professionals will be able to evaluate the person with a rapid COVID-19 test and transportation to a medical facility if necessary. 

    • Temperature Check Locations:
      • Tent in the Showplace Parking Lot: 6:00 AM – 7:00 PM
      • Designated buildings around High Point, including IMC multi-showroom Properties.  
      • Should building locations become backed up, we suggest attendees utilize the Showplace Parking Lot Tent which is equipped to handle higher capacity.

 

Safety Protocols

  • IMC’s Together Safely Protocols will be in place in our buildings.

  • All attendees will need to clear a daily temperature check in order to be issued a wristband each day.

  • All attendees will be required to wear masks while indoors.

  • Attendees should wash hands every hour, or use hand sanitizer.

  • Enhanced cleaning protocols are in practice in IMC buildings and hand sanitizer stations are in place for attendees use.

  • All attendees must maintain proper social distancing at all times. Maximum capacity limits have been assigned to each showroom to maintain proper density, thus we encourage buyers to make appointments to be most productive at market.

 

Mask Policy

  • Face Coverings are Required throughout North Carolina.

  • Everyone accessing any of the buildings must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth of the wearer.  Anyone arriving without a mask will be provided with a three-ply disposable mask immediately upon entry.  Everyone must always wear a mask while in the buildings, except that they may be removed while eating or drinking, as long as the wearer is socially distanced from anyone not in his or her party.

  • IMC Mask Ambassadors will remind showrooms and attendees of the mask policy throughout market.

  • Anyone who refuses to wear a mask or follow proper physical distancing requirements will be denied entry.

  • Showroom Non-compliance will be escalated and could result in reduced showroom capacity and cancelation of market badge.
