The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) is now accepting submissions from bloggers and social media influencers as well as sponsorships from exhibitors for its Design Bloggers Tour for the 2018 Fall Market, October 13–17, 2018.
A partnership between the HPMA and Esteem Media, the High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour will bring a group of ten leading design bloggers to High Point Market for two full days of tours in sponsoring showrooms. Participating bloggers will visit each sponsor for an up-close look at the exhibitors’ company, showroom and products during a 45-minute presentation and tour. The tour will kick off on Sunday, October 14, and conclude on Monday, October 15.
“This program just keeps getting better and better," says Adam Japko, Founder of Esteem Media which produces the Design Bloggers Conference (now called the Design Influencers Conference). "From the reach of participating bloggers to the quality of the content produced to the immersive experience provided by exhibitors during the tours, it’s something I’m proud to be a part of. This unique project is a natural extension of our conference, designed to promote quality online design content and community building. It’s a thrilling program which benefits all involved, with both participating bloggers and exhibitors receiving great exposure.”
“Being a part of the Design Bloggers Tour was the best way to see High Point Market for the first time,” said Ivonne Ronderos of DKOR Interiors. “We were able to target specific vendors that really valued our presence and get to know more in depth about their brands. High Point Market is spread out throughout buildings and different locations and being a part of the tour helped us to get oriented and plan better for our next trip. Not only was the show an unexpected array of fantastic vendors but the friendships we developed during our time together were priceless. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.”
The submission form for bloggers and social media influencers will be available here until Tuesday, July 10.
