TUPELO, Miss., Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Those registering for the upcoming Tupelo Furniture Market will have more than the new pre-tax season dates, January 5-8, to look forward to as the event draws near. The Market recently announced it will offer participants at its upcoming 60 th event a mobile phone app that will allow users to use their smart phones to find which companies are showing, where they are located in the expansive 2-million square foot facility, and what types of furniture, accessories or gift-related products they are selling. In addition, users will be able to easily find times, dates and locations of parties, seminars, demonstrations and special events being held during the 4-day market. "It is our intent to make the process of buying and selling product as efficient and easy as possible for our customers," said Kevin J. Seddon, president of the Tupelo Market. "Time is money and many of the retailers attending the market have certain products and companies that they are familiar with and they have plans to purchase their product. Buyers cannot always recall the showroom location of companies or sometimes the companies move from one building to another; therefore, providing a means for retailers to quickly determine an exhibiting company's location saves time and leg work! Additionally, buyers interested in finding new companies with new products, will easily find the information via the app." Seddon explained that printed show directories will still be provided to those attending the market and that the app will offer much of the information contained in the directories; however, finding information will be much faster if the app is utilized. In addition, the app will also contain much more usable data, including specials being offered by companies showcasing product for example. "Companies offering Tupelo Only Specials (TOS) will be listed, as will their specials," said Seddon. "These specials often include free shipping, on-site discounts on purchases, new product offers or close-outs on products."
