spoga+gafa suspends for 2020, changing to new date.
The next edition of spoga+gafa will be held from 30 May to 1 June 2021
At the request of the industry, Koelnmesse is permanently moving the date for spoga+gafa to the first half of the year. In future, this means that the largest garden lifestyle trade fair in the world will be held at a time more convenient for orders by large segments of the industry.
With the entire area almost fully booked the spring of 2020 and thus outstanding registration levels for spoga+gafa, the trade fair situation increasingly came to reflect the current developments around Covid-19 and the economic situation. The news about new cases of infection in Germany played a role, as well. The current travel situation is still uncertain, too – particularly at the intercontinental level. That is why in recent weeks a large majority of exhibitors and trade visitors decided not to attend spoga+gafa after all. In the end, the extensive preparations for the trade fair and the #B-SAFE4business package of measures for the coronavirus-compliant implementation of our trade fairs were not enough to calm the hesitancy amongst trade fair attendees. For this reason Koelnmesse reassessed the overall situation together with the Advisory Board and decided that it was best to respond to the cancellations and wishes of a large number of industry exhibitors and visitors by not implementing spoga+gafa 2020. The event will also be rescheduled permanently at the request of the industry. The next edition of spoga+gafa is thus set to be held from 30 May to-1 June 2021.Read press release
