    IMC's commitment to delivering an exceptional market experience in Atlanta, High Point and Las Vegas remains paramount in the time of COVID-19. We have reviewed the key players in the office, retail, hospitality, and gaming sectors for best practices, consulted with suppliers and service contractors, and have tracked mandates and recommendations of federal, state, and local governments for the jurisdictions in which IMC operates. In addition, IMC has engaged an Emory University-based epidemiologist, Dr. Carlos Del Rio, to consult in the preparation and implementation of this reopening program. Additionally, IMC has tapped a cross-functional team on its own staff to produce a set of protocols to guide the process of reopening our facilities.

    Join this webinar to review highlights from our health & safety master plan and what to expect at upcoming summer markets. Dr. del Rio will join the IMC leadership team to discuss the reopening plan and answer questions related to COVID-19's impact on our Market procedures - including use of PPE, social distancing protocols, logistical changes and more.

    Designers and retailers need to have their fingers on the consumer pulse. Do retailers need to branch out into new categories? Is e-commerce an essential in today’s environment? Does balancing hospitality, residential and more help a designer’s bottom line? Are there new business models retailers and designers should be keeping an eye on to ensure longevity in times of crisis? As part of Home Design Business Think Tank: Maximize Your Profitability! We’ll explore the facets of growing a successful interior design business and home furnishings retail as part of a series of four panels — from the categories and opportunities you should be considering to ways to make money outside of client interaction.
