DIY : The Stars of HGTV Reunite This Fall at HPMKT – Design Talk LIVE – Medium

This Fall, the stars of your favorite HGTV shows will descend on High Point, NC for the first ever “Unofficial” HGTV Stars Reunion, hosted by Surya and Design Talk LIVE, Sunday October 14.

We’ve seen them on television. We’ve shared their stories. We’ve watched them compete. We’ve laughed. We’ve cried. We’ve learned to DIY. We’ve watched them get cancelled. We’ve watched them get rebooted.

For the first time ever, we get to see them in one place as they walk the red carpet and reunite.

Design Talk LIVE and Surya have teamed up to host a star studded, red carpet reunion party for current and former castmates of HGTV’s most popular shows at this Fall 2018 High Point Market, in North Carolina.

“When I saw Design Star [Season 1] Tym De Santo connect with a season 3 castmate at Spring Market, I saw the magic of what a reunion like this would mean to the design community and former castmates.” says Design Talk LIVE host, Joseph Haecker

This started as a reunion party for former castmates of HGTV’s “Design Stars”, dreamed up by Tym De Santo. But busy schedules and timing prevented it from coming together.

Not one to back down from a big challenge, Design Talk LIVE’s, Joseph Haecker called up several of his design industry friends and said, “I have an idea. This is going to be an epic event!”.

Surya’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jackie Paulsen saw the vision and the potential to do something the industry has never done before.

Registration is now open for current and former castmates of HGTV shows, as well as press.

Ahead of the October Market, castmates that register will be given the opportunity to make a guest appearance on what Facebook has recognized as the “first call-in style talk show on facebook”, Design Talk LIVE. Where they’ll be able to share their current projects, announcements and who they are looking forward to reuniting with at the reunion.

Design Talk LIVE has teamed up with other podcast and talk show hosts, such as: Design+Style, The Chaise Lounge, Design Chats, John Tudisco’s “Happy Hour”, A Well-Designed Business, and others to create a media circuit, so that former and current HGTV castmates have a platform for sharing their news and announcements ahead of the reunion.

Registration is already open, at:
