Blogfest is upon us! In less than a week we will welcome 150 interior designers and lifestyle bloggers to New York City for Blogfest 2012. We thought it would be helpful to answer some of your questions in advance, so we’ve broken out this information by day, starting with Monday.
As part of Blogfest, all attendees will receive a ticket to the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, taking place at the Javits Center in NYC. The press desk has a list of Blogfest names, so when you arrive at ICFF, check in there to receive your ticket.
Blogfest attendees may visit ICFF at any time during the weekend, but if you plan to attend on Monday afternoon there are some special perks. Wilsonart is hosting our bloggers at booth #2248, where you can enter to win a counter makeover. Wilsonart is sponsoring a bus to the Architectural Digest Kickoff Party, so make sure you check in at their booth on Monday for info on where to catch the bus at 3:30.
Kickoff Party at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House
Architectural Digest Editor in Chief Margaret Russell is hosting the kickoff event of Blogfest, a party at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. This year’s show house is not one, but TWO penthouse apartments. We took a sneak peek this week and you are in for a real treat, the space is exceptional.
Blogfest attendees should plan to arrive right at 4 pm. This way, you’ll have lots of time to check in, tour the house and take photos AND mingle with fellow bloggers and meet the great team from Arch Digest. You’ll check in downstairs when you enter, and there will be a coat check as well for coats and large bags.
Savant Experience Center
From Kips Bay we will head down to Soho on a bus that will drop us at the Savant Experience Center. The space, designed by Thom Filicia, integrates state of the art Savant technology with beautiful design. What could be better? There will be lots to eat and drink, and Thom will be there to meet everyone and talk about the space.
Savoir Beds After Party
Energized from the last two parties, Blogfest attendees will walk around the corner through beautiful Soho to the Savoir Beds showroom for the final party of the night. Luxurious beds for lounging, plus plenty more food and drink await!
From there it’s home, hotel, etc. and we’ll see you bright and early Tuesday morning for more Blogfest fun. Check back this week for Tuesday and Wednesday information.
