It likely depends on you and your market.  I have received sponsorship solicitation requests for other types of events but have not participated.

Jeff,

Nothing of this magnitude, however some of our clients have sponsored the little league uniforms, and others have sponsored Farmers Market events.  It is really a function of the marketplace.  This was in Northern Cal, and the result was greater visibility, referrals and listings.  A

No, I haven't. Then again flowers and gardens aren't my thing. I've known other people who did these types of sponsorships for wedding shows, etc. and reported little ROI and stopped.

That isn't cheap.  We have sponsored a breast cancer awareness run in the past for two years at a high sponsorship level, but was disappointed in the marketing we received. I find our money is better spent in other ways.

No.  I don't see the value in these events, in general, and in specific a gardening event.  Those don't seem like people looking to sell/buy a home.
