Sponsorship…What’s in it for You?

We invite interested businesses to participate in the Fling by becoming a sponsor. Each year between 70 and 100 garden bloggers from across North America, as well as the U.K. and beyond, gather in a new host city for inspirational garden touring and networking.

Our high-profile garden bloggers lead the discussion about gardening in all its forms, both in their communities and in the far-reaching world of the Internet. As influential garden communicators, Fling bloggers can create a buzz and excitement about your products. They will be blogging, tweeting, pinning, and posting to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media about the public and private gardens they tour, the people they meet, and the products that excite them.

Sponsorships help defray the costs associated with Fling activities, including, but not limited to, garden admissions, catered meals, facility rentals and transportation. In appreciation, all sponsor names, logos and websites are linked to the official Garden Bloggers Fling Blog and Garden Bloggers Fling Facebook Page, shared in a print directory with attendees, and acknowledged throughout the Fling event.

Depending on the level of sponsorship, we offer additional benefits to thank our sponsors for their generosity. Check with the current lead planner for up-to-date specifics.

Sponsors of current and past Garden Bloggers Fling events include the following:

Highlighted in bold, with special thanks, are our Friends of the Fling – loyal sponsors who have supported the Garden Bloggers Fling for five years or $5,000, whichever comes first (as of 2017).
