New York, New Orleans, London, Cologne, Los Angeles and Las Vegas are a few of the destinations Modenus’ BlogTours have covered in the past few years. Now, for the third year, a hand-selected group of 12 bloggers are headed to New York City, where it all began, to spend four days reporting on new trends and products at the AD Home Design Show (March 19 – 22) and various locations around the city.
“We are excited to be headed back to New York City for AD Home Design Show, where we will, once again, be co-hosting the annual Marys & Mimosas kick off event before touring the show to share our favorite design finds live via our social media platforms and after the show via our blogs,” said Veronika Miller, CEO of Modenus.
The participating bloggers include (pictured from left to right above) Alison Habermehl, owner and principal of hdSTYLESTUDIO (a division of Habermehl Design Group Inc.); Jeffrey Johnson of Jeffrey Design LLC; Deborah Main of Deborah Main Designs; color expert Faith Sheridan; Typhanie Peterson, home décor contributor to Think Crafts Blog; product photographer and blogger Paola Thomas; Marc Abelman, CFO and director of marketing for Inside Style; interior designer Maureen Coates of MODECOR; Marcy Michaud of Stylesson; Vicki Gladle Bolick, principal designer of Bolick Interiors LLC; Jeanne Chung of Cozy•Stylish•Chic; and Jill Abelman, owner of Inside Style.
The bloggers will spend one full day at the AD Home Design Show and two days at classes that include styling, photography, floral arranging and mixology.
“This tour is different from anything we've done before. In addition to our trade show coverage, we will focus on enriching our team's experience by providing a number of hands-on learning sessions that will hopefully allow them to take away new skills or hone a skill they already have,” said Miller.
Bloggers apply to be part of each new tour and are accepted based on their design business and social media savvy. Additional destinations for 2014 BlogTours are Milan in April, New York again in May and Paris in September.
