"HIGH POINT, N.C. May 5, 2015 – The High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau has partnered with Your High Point and unveiled a new free mobile app that is downloadable through the Google Play and the App stores for both Android and Apple smart devices.
“We are making it easy for visitors to find shopping, restaurants, and even the weather forecast,” says Tim Mabe, president and CEO of the High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau. “This app has everything from a listing of upcoming events to a place for notes about your visit to High Point.”

It also includes a Welcome Page with facts and figures about life in High Point as well as information on Events, Places to Go, Sponsors, Your Notes and, of course, an up-to-date weather forecast. The section called ‘Nearby’ offers tips on where visitors can find area attractions in addition to furniture shopping, lodging and restaurants with links to the High Point CVB’s social media pages and website.
“This app makes up-to-date information about High Point accessible with the tap of your finger,” says Mabe. “We hope visitors and residents will use it to find fun activities, events and all of the other information they need to make their trip to High Point the very best it can be so that they will want to return over and over again.”
