Zephyr Ventilation Hosts Second Annual San Francisco Blogger Retreat
Leading Kitchen, Design, and Lifestyle Bloggers Learn About Zephyr and Experience the Best In Food, Design, and Wine
SAN FRANCISCO, December 15th, 2016 — Zephyr Ventilation, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation, and technology, hosted its second annual Zephyr Blogger Retreat from October 25th – 28th, 2016 in San Francisco and Napa, California. Zephyr curated an experience for 12 kitchen, design, food, and lifestyle bloggers from across the country.
The bloggers attended a 3-day retreat that showcased Zephyr’s new products in its 6,000 square foot Showroom, and they experienced the best in food, design, and wine in SF and Napa. The bloggers in attendance included: Aida Mollenkamp, Billy Green, Carla Aston, Courtney Lake, Dorothy Macik, Jeffrey Johnson, Julie Blanner, Julie Deily, Karly Gomez, Lori Gilder, Michael Wurm, and Toni Sabatino.
The Zephyr Blogger Retreat began in San Francisco’s Design District where they learned more about Zephyr’s new products and technology, and received a presentation from its Cheng Collection Designer, Fu-Tung Cheng. The bloggers also visited Nido Living – a showroom that offers comprehensive interior design services focused on aesthetic, comfort, and high-quality furniture. The group also toured the Daltile Showroom, an industry-leading brand of ceramic, porcelain, glass and metal tile products, and Coup d’Etat – a San Francisco gallery featuring eclectic vintage furnishings, and art offerings.
In addition to visiting award-winning restaurants, the bloggers experienced wine country in Napa Valley with tastings, an art gallery tour, and lunch. Throughout the Blogger Retreat, Zephyr received ongoing coverage under the hashtag #ZephyrBloggerRetreat2016 with more than 2.5 million impressions across social media channels.
“We understand that bloggers are at the cutting edge of design trends and inspire their readers on a daily basis,” says Zephyr President Luke Siow. “Given that ventilation is not a topic that you read about every day on your favorite lifestyle blog, these partnerships expose our products and the importance of ventilation to a new and captive audience. In addition, these retreats allow us to build relationships with key influencers in the design community.”
