Statements on spoga+gafa 2016

“spoga+gafa is the most important international platform for the garden market and for most of our members. As the conceptual sponsor, we are delighted that the dynamics of the trade fair have increased over the last years and that it has become more and more important for national and international customer contacts.”

„For the first time in 2016 the Horticultural Trades Association attended the spoga+gafa trade fair with a group of retailers and manufacturers as part of an inspirational trip to Cologne which also included visits to some local Garden Centres. Many of our group had never attended the exhibition and were overwhelmed with the expansive halls that really encompassed the future of the horticultural industry. The EFSA hall was a particular highlight and showed us where the trends and design are heading in 2017 and beyond. The networking events were also invaluable and relationships have been forged with suppliers that have already been implemented back in the UK doing business together. We would highly recommend the experience and see it as a must attend event in the horticultural calendar for trend inspiration.”

“spoga+gafa 2016 in the opinion of our members: satisfied exhibitors, good business, successful existing customer care as well as new national and international customer contacts.”
