spoga+gafa 2018 on course for success

After the record year 2017, spoga+gafa, the biggest garden fair in the world, is still on course for success: In the annual comparison (January), the 2018 event is recording a 5 percent increase in the number of exhibitors. The early
confirmation of the big names of the industry confirms the course taken: Themes and added value islands like the IVG Power Place Akku, the Smart Gardening
World, the POS Green Solution Islands or the Outdoor Kitchen World went down extremely positively with both the visitors and the exhibitors and will be repeated again at spoga+gafa 2018 from 2 to 4 September. Communicatively, the
focus of the coming event will lie on the exhibitors of outdoor furniture. A further key topic of the trade fair will be the theme soil, substrate and fertilisers. An independent visitor survey came to the conclusion that this
section is of particular interest to the international trade visitors.

spoga+gafa 2018 already laid the foundation for the excellent
early bird result with the previous event: It impressed highly with an excellent field of participants due to
numerous conceptual innovations that provided more depth of content. The organisers are now building on this success. Numerous strong brands, who were already represented in 2017, can been found on the application list for spoga+gafa 2018, including Berger, Birchmeier, BM-Massivholz, Felco, Fitt, Freund-Victoria, Gardena, Hozelock, Mesto, Napoleon, Patzer, Rösle, Selecta, STIGA, Weber-Stephen and Zebra. Furthermore, the organisers are recording trade fair returnees in all four
product sections garden living, garden creation & care, garden bbq and garden unique, including Boomex, Gloria, Otto Graf, Juwel, Profagus and Videx. The list of furniture exhibitors includes among others Barlow Tyrie, Cane-Line, Eurofar, 4
Seasons, Garden Impressions Glatz, Hartman, Higold, Hillerstorp, Kettler, Müsing, Nardi, Alexander Rose, Sieger and Stern.
