The ten selected influencers will receive a stipend to participate and  travel voucher to be applied for the Fall 2022 High Point Market, October 22-26.

The new deadline follows the close of this year’s Design Influencers Conference taking place August 17-19, 2022, in Atlanta, which was rescheduled from its typical spring timing.

This fall, the Design Influencers Tour program will bring ten design influencers to High Point Market for a two-day tour of sponsoring showrooms. During each 45-minute tour, showroom visits offer an opportunity to learn about the exhibitor’s company history, its brand positioning, and furnishings products.

Returning home after the fall trade show, each influencer will promote the tour sponsors by utilizing their online platforms, ranging from blogs to social media channels, to reflect on the inspirational product designs and other experiences discovered at High Point Market.

“Through the Design Influencers Tour, guides will earn the chance to grow their influence, build relationships with brand sponsors, and to create fresh content from their time on the ground at Market,” says  Tom Conley, president and CEO of the High Point Market Authority.

“It’s always exciting to review the submissions from current and up and coming influencers in the interior design space,” says Adam Japko, founder of Esteem Media and the Design Influencers Conference. “We look for strong candidates who are eager to bring awareness and value to High Point Market attendees and the sponsoring showrooms.”

The tour will kick off on Sunday, October 23, and conclude on Monday, October 24. To be considered, influencers must complete and submit the form found at by 5 pm ET, Monday, August 22.
