DALLAS - Dallas Market Center will host its first bloggers' gathering, "Sneak Peek: A Conversation Starter," during the January 2013 Total Home and Gift Market.

"We're thrilled to host our first bloggers' gathering during January Market," said Meredith Hite, VP of corporate communications, Dallas Market Center. "We look forward to welcoming and inspiring design and lifestyle bloggers with exclusive showroom visits, educational and networking opportunities and the overall exciting experience of market."

The Jan. 18-19 agenda includes a private meet-and-greet with HGTV's John Gidding, showroom visits, a celebrity chef product and cooking demo by Australian chef, author and TV personality Curtis Stone, and an opportunity to attend the 24th annual ARTS Awards Gala, which recognizes home industry excellence and achievement in retailing, manufacturing, design and representation.

Bloggers will receive a swag bag valued at more than $100.
