“We are thrilled to once again include the Design Bloggers Tour in our High Point Market programming,” says Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority. “The two-day tour connects leading home furnishings brands to new audiences and introduces design aficionados to better understand the range and capabilities of our great sponsored exhibitors.”

“Guiding groups of energetic and highly authentic design bloggers remains a significant highlight of our year at Esteem Media and the Design Influencers Conference. Having the opportunity to dive deeply into a brand’s product line and backstory has proven uniquely rewarding for both the brands and bloggers,” commented Adam Japko, founder and CEO of Esteem Media. “After years of working Market with these leading content creators we have witnessed the generation of top-notch, insightful coverage and this fall 2019 group will certainly follow suit by uniquely presenting their authentic insights into the highlights and trends they’ll discover in the sponsoring showrooms.”
