Event programme of spoga+gafa
As the largest garden lifestyle fair in the world, spoga+gafa offered you a wide-ranging event programme - live at Cologne or on the digital spoga+gafa. International experts from the green industry had their say in lectures and talk shows in the scope of this forward-looking garden event.
The focus here lied on the key theme "Sustainable Gardens" , which influences all sections of the industry. Insights into environmentally-friendly solutions, innovative concepts and success stories from real life practice awaited the trade visitors of spoga+gafa.
Theme-specific tours around the fair grounds also enabled visitors to grapple with the topic of sustainability, the latest POS ideas or the furniture and decoration trends of 2022 in a targeted manner. Networking is also of great importance to us: Exhibitors and trade visitors from all over the world met up with trade visitors from the trade at the many events to engage in an exchange about the garden ideas of the future. As such, visiting the trade fair will bring your business an important boost.
The Forum Garden Café is dedicated to the theme sustainability, which occupies the industry from the product development, to the production, through to the marketing. The perception and the buying behaviour of the customers has been changing significantly for many years, so that "buying with a good conscious" gains ever-increasing importance. Peat-free soils, upcycling or a possible CO2 label are among the further trend topics related to sustainability, which are moving the manufacturers and the dealers. Which challenges, but also which opportunities green garden ideas can bring the industry will be discussed by international players at spoga+gafa.
Technology and Outdoor Furniture are further exciting trends that will be addressed in the Garden Forum of spoga+gafa. The many lectures and talks on technical new products serve as a window to the future. For example new battery-run garden tools or smart gardening technologies show that the digitalisation is also taking the garden industry by storm. In addition to the products, the digitalisation is also changing the buying procedure itself. Which is why it is all the more important for dealers to familiarise themselves with the possibilities of the new technologies and keep a close eye on precisely how customer behaviour changes as a result. In the scope of the Forum Technology, developers, CEOs and other experts will provide exciting insights so that you can keep pace with the technical trends.
Furnishing the garden living-room is also being awarded a special stage at spoga+gafa. In the course of the Outdoor Furniture & Decoration Trend Show, the trade visitors can experience how the lifestyle feeling of the garden can be brought to life. One's own garden has hardly ever been as highly-appreciated as today. Hence, outdoor furniture and decoration are the focus of this garden event. Furthermore, there is the Boulevard of ideas for the most innovative products. Here selected new products from all product sections will be on display.
