Marketing Strategy

We utilize a strategic combination of advertising dollars and media sponsorships to ensure a vast amount of coverage for our show! We understand that if we don’t bring in the ideal customers for you, you won’t want to exhibit with us. Your success, is our success!
In the months and weeks leading up to our event, we advertise on TV, radio, digital, social, newspapers, billboards, magazines and more! Our marketing efforts cover Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, and Eastern New York! Additionally, we often set up media sponsorships with the top outlets in the area to increase our reach and impact beyond our advertising dollars! Furthermore, we work with a top local public relations specialist that often generates over 30 TV & radio interviews promoting the show each year!
Our show is routinely considered one of the top events of its kind in the New England area! The show has been featured in multiple magazines and the New York Times as a top destination event!
In conclusion, with help from Connecticut Green Industries and The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc., garden centers, landscapers and florists all spread the word, creating a buzz drawing over 40,000 attendees on an annual basis— It’s a great show you need to be a part of!


“The CT Flower & Garden Show is the traditional kickoff to the region’s garden season. We look forward to renewed relationships with friends and subscribers. The four days of full-blown spring in February – is an awakening, inspiring, and educating experience for all.”

Anne & Will Rowlands, CT Gardener Magazine - Publishers

“Many, many thanks to Kristie for her generous help & support of the Federated Garden Clubs exhibit, making it our most successful show to date! Her patience, knowledge of the business and willingness to help made for a great partnership! Looking forward to doing it again!”

Ginni Donovan, Federated Garden Club of CT - Show Chair

“Thanks for putting on such a great show this year! The flower displays were spectacular and our sales were up 27%!”

Andre Kreft, Savor Fine Foods - Owner

“The Flower Show has been great for Paul Buettner Florist. We have met many current customers there and have made quite a few new ones through the exposure. We have booked two weddings after meeting the brides at the show. To be able to meet and greet the thousands of flower lovers is incredible. The show increases our recognition and gets our name out there.”

Bob Buettner, Paul Buettner Florist

On behalf of the Federated Garden Clubs, I would like to thank you and your team for all of your support and good will (to me especially since I was a newbie!)  From Laura, Carma, Pete an everyone else we got nothing but cooperation and smiles and that made the whole experience so much more special!

Lynda Brown, Federated Garden Club of CT
