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

High Point, NC, January 14, 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 Spring Market, April 16 – 20, 2016.

The High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour will bring a group of ten (10) authoritative design bloggers to High Point Market for a 3-day tour of sponsoring showrooms. Participating bloggers will visit each sponsor for an up-close look at the exhibitors’ company, showroom and products during a 30 or 60 minute presentation and tour. The tour will kick off on opening day of Market, Saturday, April 16, and conclude on Monday, April 18.

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 a part of the Design Bloggers Tour was an honor and such a great experience,” commented Mitzi Beach of BoomerSmarts (www.mitzibeach.com), one of the bloggers who participated in the inaugural Fall 2015 tour. “In addition to all I learned in the showrooms, the tour allowed me to really connect and become friends with respected designers in our industry on a personal basis. This was a huge take away for me that continues today.”

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 Friday, February 5. The ten selected bloggers will be announced at the Design Bloggers Conference, scheduled for March 6-8, 2016, in Atlanta.
