High Point really is a personal favorite of mine, and I think, for most of us at Currey. It is the only place, at one time, we see all of our friends, customers and peers each year in the spring and fall. In the case of my personal calendar, it really is the social highlight of my year. For me, leaving High Point is always a melancholy experience as over the course of a five hour drive I realize I won’t be seeing so many people for another six months.
The spring crowds have arrived and it would appear that many are feeling better about their business, less uncertain about what the future may bring, and generally more upbeat. Everyone is excited to see new product, catch up and maybe buy a few things. Good stuff.
With the crowds really and truly arriving today, our spirited and hard working catering team, bartenders and musicians worked, and I mean worked, to keep everyone feed, watered and engaged. It was a great effort and one well spent. It is difficult to describe just how hard, Mark Thrower’s team works, voluntarily to serve our guests. It is a pleasure to work by their side.
I would also like to offer a big thank you to Ronda Rice Carman, whose book signing was in my opinion, a grand success.
It was a big day all in all. Lots of people, excellent business, great socialization and exceptional entertainment.
Let’s all hope for more of the same on Tuesday.
