COLOGNE, Germany - Organizers for the spoga+gafa trade fair, to be held Sept. 8-10 in Cologne, Germany, are encouraging attendees to book their show tickets and travel accommodations early to take advantage of special offers.
Entrance tickets for the spoga+gafa entitle the trade fair visitors to use the local transport services in and around Cologne free of charge during the event.
Positioned in the center of Europe, the Cologne/Bonn Airport is one of the biggest commercial airports in Europe. Special offers for flights from abroad to Cologne, as well as to Düsseldorf or Frankfurt, are available under the Travel and Accommodation section of the spoga+gafa website.
The price reductions are calculated automatically once the booking code DEZQYR is entered. Guests who are planning to fly from within Europe can also opt for one of the many so-called "low-cost carrier" airlines.
Once safely landed at Cologne/Bonn Airport, visitors can continue their journey by tram or taxi. Both means of transport convey the trade fair visitors to the exhibition grounds in the Deutz district of Cologne conveniently and fast, according to a spoga+gafa press release. The S13 tram runs directly to the Köln Messe/Deutz (Cologne Exhibition/Deutz) several times an hour. Depending on the traffic, the journey takes about 20 minutes by tram and taxi.
In cooperation with the Deutsche Bahn, the Koelnmesse is offering train tickets at reduced prices for those planning to travel to spoga+gafa by train. Bookings can be made by phone (20 cents per call from German landlines, max. 60 cents per call using mobile phones) via the retail outlet of the Deutsche Bahn GmbH (+49 180 6 31 11 53, code word "spoga+gafa") or online.
Spoga+gafa visitors can use the hotel services of the Koelnmesse to help them find the right hotel. Hotels can be conveniently booked online via the Travel and Accommodation link on the spoga+gafa website. The same applies for the reservation of private rooms.
Visitors who pre-register and order their show tickets online can profit from two advantages: They will gain fast access into the exhibition halls during spoga+gafa and they also obtain their entrance tickets at the reduced advance sale price. This only applies for ticket shop orders until Sep. 7. Advance tickets are available to order online via the spoga+gafa website.
