Blogging and social media finally is catching on among the design industry–and the news of the first new media event exclusively for interior design bloggers is proof. The first Design Bloggers Conference (Twitter: #DBC2011) will be held on February 28 – March 1 at the Sofitel L.A. in Los Angeles, hosted by Internet marketing service, DesignSherpa, and aims to bring together top influential designers and design media.
Attendees will benefit from insight into key strategies in blogging, online brand development, design media, and new media tools. Additionally, winners of the “How Blogging Has Changed My Life” social media contest will be announced.
“Increasingly, interior design professionals and enthusiasts are recognizing the power of blogging and social media tools to build engaged online communities and personal brands that are driving meaningful public personas and significant marketing outcomes,” says Adam Japko, president of Network Communication Inc.’s Design and DigitalSherpa division, in a statement. “So we organized a first-of-its-kind event specifically for this group, with the vision to assemble today’s top minds and thought leaders and to create a networking and learning opportunity for engaged online interior design content creators.”
