The leading global trade fair of the green garden lifestyle industry is fully booked . Suppliers from all continents will meet up with decision-makers from the specialised trade and worldwide large-surface outlets at the Cologne fair grounds from 18 to 20 June. 

spoga+gafa 2023: More area, more exhibitors, more trends

spoga+gafa begins two days after the Global DIY Summit, which is being staged in Berlin in 2023 and already welcomed over 1,000 exhibitors from 52 countries last year. Figures that will be topped in 2023 with 14 halls in total after the opening of four additional halls.

There are manifold reasons for the trade fair's growth: On the one hand, intercontinental exhibitors, i.e. from North America and Asia are seeking contacts to the global and national trade at spoga+gafa again. At the same time, the number of participants from the DACH region, the Benelux countries and Europe have increased significantly compared to last year.  

Together with its exhibitors, the trade fair has once again expanded the contents of the four product segments "garden unique", "garden creation & care", "garden bbq" and "garden living". The success of this continual further development of spoga+gafa is underlined by the growth in the number of exhibitors and the related positive development regarding the exhibition space. Discover the event programme.

This year's key theme "Social Gardens - places of encounter" is playing an important role in the design of the trade fair grounds. The domestic garden, the balcony or the terrace are gaining increased importance and once again serve as the meeting point for families, friends and neighbours. The manufacturers and the trade are supporting this social function of the garden with new products and solutions. With its focus on "Social Gardens - places of encounter", spoga+gafa 2023 is picking up on the significance of the garden and is sustainably underlining the worldwide social relevance of private green spaces.  

Lectures and talk formats with international experts from the green industry will elaborate on the key theme and throw light on other industry challenges.

This year's POS Green Solution Islands concept is also full of new contents, added value and messages. It not only shows solutions for improving floor-space turnover, but also takes a look at other industries and the future of the trade. The supporting programme of the trade fair is enhanced by attractive special zones such as the Boulevard of Ideas, the Outdoor Furniture Trend Show, Decoration and BBQs as well as diversified, theme-based tours of the fair grounds.
