design_bloggers_spring-tour_logo_datesHigh Point, NC, December 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 the 2017 Spring Market, April 22 – 26, and is now accepting submissions from bloggers and social media influencers interested in being considered for the tour and sponsorship inquiries from interested exhibitors.

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, April 23, and conclude on Monday, April 24.

Esteem Media, founded by Adam Japko, produces the highly successful Design Bloggers Conference (www.design-bloggers-conference.com) each year. “This will be our 4th tour, and it just keeps getting better each time,” commented Japko. “This unique project is a natural extension of our Design Bloggers Conference project, 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.”

“The Design Bloggers Tour is such an amazing experience and a wonderful way to experience High Point Market,” commented Courtney Allison of the French Country Cottage blog, a repeat veteran of the tour. “The tour covers a lot of ground at Market and there have been many new-to-me showrooms and companies that I discovered while on the tour that are now favorites. I also enjoyed spending time with other bloggers and leaders on the team and have developed close friendships with many of them.”

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 Wednesday, January 25. The ten selected bloggers will then be announced live in early March at the Design Bloggers Conference in Los Angeles.
