High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau
The High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is not the typical Convention & Visitors Bureau. To be sure, the organization works tirelessly to promote travel and tourism in High Point – and with great success by bringing in nearly a half million visitors last year with an economic impact of more than $150 million. The High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau also offers a variety of proactive programming, including its Prime Time on Main series, Partners of Excellence program, promotion of furniture shopping and support for downtown revitalization.
High Point Home Furnishings Market
Why is High Point the world’s home for home furnishings? Because it’s been home to the world’s largest home furnishings trade show, High Point Market, since 1909. Boasting 11.5 million square feet of showspace, High Point Market is the largest economic event in the state, bringing 75,000 visitors to our hometown twice a year, every year.

Each year, more than 300,000 people in the greater High Point area benefit from the exceptional health care services provided by High Point Regional. Our Centers of Excellence include the Congdon Regional Heart Center, Hayworth Cancer Center, Esther R. Culp Women’s Center, Piedmont Joint Replacement Center and the Emergency Center.
