Consumers today are spending more and more time inside and outside their largest investment…their home! As home buying slows down, consumers are improving the home they live in. Our goal is to bring buyers of these services to you so you can show what you can do “face to face”. This year’s event will again be the highlight of the Spring season. Since 1981, this successful event has proven to be a great source of leads and sales for home and garden businesses across the country. Our promotion is second to none as we have over 35 years of experience using radio, television, newspaper, billboards, magazines, discount coupons, group tickets, press releases and now social media to help promote this huge event. We are the leading Home & Garden Show in Maryland and we are committed to your success. Below are demographics for the show.

Our seminars are a very popular feature of the show. Topics range from gardening to home improvement help and everything in between. Your company will be mentioned over the public address system each time a seminar is announced to the crowd.

Shuttle Bus Sponsorship – $2,500
Each day of the show, we provide shuttle service that runs throughout the fairgrounds parking areas to bring consumers right to our buildings. This is very much appreciated by our attendees and you can take the credit for providing the service via your sponsorship. Signage will be placed on each bus/trolley with your company logo and/or message. Your company will be mentioned on our announcements which run approximately every 20 minutes during the show. In addition, you will receive 50 VIP tickets to use at your discretion. You will be acknowledged on our web site and in the show program as the Shuttle Bus Sponsor.
