Providing an international business platform to showcase the latest trends and newest products in the garden market, the spoga+gafa trade fair, held Sept. 4-6 in Cologne, Germany, attracted 36,300 trade visitors from 106 countries, an increase of more than 40% compared to the previous event in 2009.
The spoga+gafa trade fair attracted approximately 36,300 trade visitors from 106 countries.
"Time to grow - that was the appropriate motto for this outstanding trade fair," said Koelnmesse Vice President Metin Ergül. "In the first year following the strategic decision to put spoga+gafa back on the annual event cycle, the wealth of innovations and top-class presentations of many leading brands from all segments helped make it possible for the trade fair to display its high quality. The fact that high-ranking international decision-makers from the full spectrum of trade channels visited spoga+gafa underscored that the fair is the leading international trade fair forum for the garden and leisure market."
Gloster showed a contemporary lineup at the show.
"The excellent participation figures, particularly from the new premium garden furniture segment, clearly show that we have established a strong foundation with garden unique," said Ergül.
