Marking a first-time partnership between HGTV Magazine and NY Now, the HGTV Magazine’s Blogger Block Party and NY Now’s Best Blog Competition are two new blogger-directed initiatives taking place at the summer market, August 16-20 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94.
An all-day event, HGTV Magazine’s first-ever Blogger Block Party will include opportunities for bloggers to meet, craft and share their experiences at an in-person event on Monday, August 18, from 12:00pm – 8:00pm, at 404 Studios, located at 404 10th Avenue between 32nd and 33rd Street just blocks from the Javits Convention Center. In connection with this event, the “Best Blog Competition,” hosted by NY Now, is open to all bloggers who write about home, lifestyle and design. To participate, bloggers must publish a post about their visit to the market which can get re-published on NY Now’s 100DaysofDesign.com blog. The blogger whose re-post receives the greatest number of facebook likes and twitter re-tweets will win a tour of the HGTV Magazine offices, and a personal meeting with editor in chief Sara Peterson.
“Our partnership with HGTV Magazine signals an exciting new relationship between two leading home and lifestyle brands,” Christian Falkenberg, NY Now director and svp said. “These two new blogger-directed events will provide fresh inspirations and insights into home and lifestyle trends and directions.”
