Ideas and impulses: The supporting programme of spoga+gafa 2016

Around 2,000 suppliers from around 60 countries will be presenting their new products for the coming outdoor season on 225,000 square metres of exhibition space at spoga+gafa from 4 to 6 September in Cologne. The comprehensive range of products will also be accompanied by a multi-faceted supporting programme again this year. Target group-specific lectures, workshops, special events and networking events will thereby create additional iimpulses and added value for the exhibitors and visitors.

Mid-term balance: spoga+gafa convinces with a high level of applications

The leading international garden trade fair, spoga+gafa, opens its doors in Cologne from 4 to 6 September. After achieving very good results during the first early bird period last October, this was a good reason for the organizers to draw a mid-term balance, six months before the trade fair begins. And the outcome is very positive: Already mid-March over 90 percent of the planned exhibition space is booked. This is a 10 percent increase compared to the number of applications one year before. With applications from 49 countries, the international garden fair is also well on course in terms of internationality.

But not only the figures are convincing, the quality of the applications is also very impressive. There are numerous top companies from home and abroad among the exhibitors of this year’s spoga+gafa, which will once again ensure that it is going to be a high-quality product show.

The suppliers of garden furniture are traditionally represented. Among others, Dekovries, Glatz, Hartman, Kettler, Nardi, Scancom, Sieger and Zebra will be exhibiting their new products at spoga+gafa.

The Decoration section constitutes a constantly expanding offer of products. With participations by Edelman (EFSA), Emsa, Elho, Esschert Design (EFSA), Kaemingk (EFSA), Keter, Lechuza, Scheurich and Soendgen, to mention just a few, the number of exhibitors in this product group is accordingly high.

At spoga+gafa 2016, participants such as Barbecook, Landmann, Napoleon, Outdoorchef, Rösle or Weber, will once again ensure that the trade visitors can experience the largest coherent offer of Grill and BBQ products worldwide.

As part of the Landgard Plant Ordering Days, Dieter Denzer Staudenvertrieb, Patzer, Romberg and Selecta-Klemm, living green and new products from the biochemicals and soils segment are also represented at the international garden trade fair.

The current applications from the garden tools segment are also very satisfying. For example, the following have already confirmed their participation at spoga+gafa: Birchmeier, Briggs&Stratton, Freund-Victoria, Gloria, Mesto/Felco, Solo and Tielbürger. GGP, Mogatec/Ikra, MTD//Wolf-Garten/CubCadet and SABO will be represented in the scope of the ‘IVG Power Place’.

The extensive offer at the international garden trade fair 2016 is rounded off by the product sections Water Technology, Garden Equipment and Sports & Games, including Bestway, Biohort, BM-Massivholz, fitt, Happy People, Hozelock or INTEX.
