In the form of the Smart Gardening World, spoga+gafa is thus establishing its second themed island for current garden-related technologies. The IVG Power Place Battery already celebrated its premiere at the trade fair last year. This is where manufacturers of battery-run devices showcase their latest products. Both themed islands will be located in Hall 6 at the coming spoga+gafa. In the centre of the Smart Gardening World and the Power Place Battery, a demonstration zone and a lecture area will invite the guests to gather practical information. In addition to the latest developments of smart garden technologies, the lecture programme is also addressing themes that are relevant for the trade.
