High Point Market - Announces Design Bloggers Tour for Fall Market 2016

High Point, NC, July 6, 2016 – The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) is pleased to announce that it has partnered again with Esteem Media to develop a Design Bloggers Tour for Fall Market, October 22 – 26, 2016, and is now accepting submissions from bloggers and social media influencers interested in being considered for the tour.

The High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour will bring a group of ten (10) leading design bloggers to High Point Market for 2 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 23, and conclude on Monday, October 24.

Esteem Media, founded by Adam Japko, produces the highly successful Design Bloggers Conference (www.design-bloggers-conference.com) each year. “We are very excited to partner with High Point Market on this unique project; a natural extension of our Design Bloggers Conference project, designed to promote quality online design content and community building,” said Japko. “It will be great exposure for the bloggers we recruit and hand-pick to touch and see the up-and-coming trends, and a great opportunity for participating exhibitors to promote their products.”

"Being chosen for The Design Bloggers Tour was such great experience. Not only did I discover new resources at High Point Market, but I enjoyed connecting with the other designers on the tour from across the country whom I now call friends,” commented Lisa Mende, owner and founder of Lisa Mende Design and one of the bloggers who participated in the Spring 2016 tour. “I consider it an honor to have been chosen for the tour and highly recommend it to other designers! It was an informative and unique market experience."

Submissions are now being accepted from design bloggers and social media influencers interested in being considered. The form will be available at http://www.highpointmarket.org/event/design-blogger-tour until Monday, August 1. The ten selected bloggers will then be announced in early September.
