HPXD Event – Field Trip & Headshot Day
February 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Alliance of Interior Design members are invited to participate in a very special VIP event during HPxD’s regularly scheduled opening on Wednesday, February 16. The day long High Point immersion experience includes showroom tours (a.k.a. field trip), lunch, an after party and a professional photo session with HPxD fashion photographer and founding member Ron Royals. Hey, we’ll even powder your nose! Your headshot session includes a pro makeup application from 10/40 Beauty.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Fifteen AID members will be selected for the VIP treatment, including makeup, photo session and curated showroom tours.
Once in High Point, fifteen VIP designers will hive off into three groups of five. Each quintet will rotate among showroom stops and the photo studio in a beautifully orchestrated and active day.
The field trip includes stops at Market Square and IHFC for specially curated tours of multiple HPxD-member showrooms within those expansive buildings.
The headshot session includes professional makeup application and camera-ready time with a photographer Ron Royals. Artful portraiture is Ron’s specialty, so get ready for your closeup! This session also includes a behind-the-scenes tour of Ron’s studio, where you can shop fine art photography reproductions from The Royals Project, Ron’s passion project!
Midway through the day we’ll gather for lunch.
The day starts at 10 AM and culminates at 5PM with cheers at a signature HPxD Mixer.
I WANT IN. HOW DO I APPLY:
To apply to be among the fifteen VIP tour members, REGISTER HERE! Together with HPxD, AID will select a diverse cadres of design talent from AID’s ranks.
Participating designers will be asked to sign a standard photography release form.
WHAT IF I’M NOT AMONG THE VIP GROUP OF 15?
The Ron Royals head shot session is limited to fifteen. Alas, there are only so many hours in a day!
But wait for the good news: ALL Alliance of Interior Design members are invited to participate in the daylong HPxD Field Trip, including special showroom access, lunch and an open invitation to the afternoon Mixer. REGISTER NOW to join the excursion!
Must I mask? Right on. In compliance with Guilford County mandates (and good sense), masking is required in all closed spaces, including group transportation and showrooms.
How much does the event cost? Nada. This is an HPxD sponsored event.
What if I’m not an AID Member? Two options. First, all credentialed interior design pros are invited to this weekly HPxD opening event. Secondly, AID welcomes new members. JOIN NOW
