We usually go to Market with a multi-level mission. Some of those goals include sourcing for projects, hitting the right panels and parties, meetings with potential collaborators, and maybe scoring some cash and carry. If you’ve ever thought “Gee, it’d sure be fun to go as blogging royalty!” now is your chance to apply to paticipate in the High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour. The deadline for applying is January 15th.
In partnership with Esteem Media, who produces the well-known Design Influencers Conference (formerly the Design Bloggers Conference), The High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour brings a group of ten leading design bloggers to High Point Market for 2 full days of tours in sponsoring showrooms. Participating bloggers visit each sponsor for an up-close look at the exhibitors’ company, showroom and products during a 45-minute presentation and tour. Esteem Media founder Adam Japko says, “This program continues to grow from every perspective. From the reach of participating bloggers to the quality of the content produced to the immersive experience provided by sponsors.” The tour kicks off on Sunday, April 7.
Submissions are now being accepted from design bloggers and social media influencers interested in being considered for the official High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour for Spring 2019. The form will be available until Tuesday, January 15, 2019. The selected team of bloggers will be announced live at the upcoming Design Influencers Conference which focuses on helping design professionals build their businesses and personal brands. This year’s event returns to Atlanta, February 24-26, 2019, and will feature a fab roster of speakers (Carson Kressley, Barry Dixon, Shayla Copas, Jana Platina Phipps, etc) too numerous to name them all. Among 2019 highlights: a track just for brands co-developed with the High Point Market Authority AND a closing gala hosted by Melanie Turner at the famous Buckhead Atlanta house (above)) that she and her husband have been restoring.
