Austin Garden Bloggers Fling is a bargain considering it includes 3-1/2 days of touring, a banquet dinner and daily lunches, daily transportation, entry to private and public gardens, two social hours (one with live music), swag bags of goodies, and a chance to win great raffle prizes, not to mention the nontangible benefit of networking and socializing with 90+ garden bloggers/communicators. How does the $275 registration fee cover all this? Short answer: it doesn’t. Sponsors cover a lot of our costs, including behind-the-scenes necessities like event insurance, rental and transportation fees, catering costs, hotel-block reservations, and more. We figure attending Austin Fling would cost about $450 per person without the support of our sponsors. Put another way, sponsors are saving each of us about $175, plus making the Fling a more enjoyable experience with more perks!
We’re grateful to the following businesses and the generous people who run them for partnering with us to make the Fling an affordable and fun event for as many bloggers as possible. Please join us in thanking them, and do check out their websites and products and share about them on your social media to give them a little blogger love in return!
