Working together for a strong green industry

What are their thoughts about their industry, the trade and their visit to the spoga+gafa

#gardenbackstronger - that is the motto for the revival of the green industry. It is the goal for which the industry is pulling together. The spoga+gafa as the largest trade fair for lifestyle in the garden plays a prominent role in this, as it is the first trade fair to bring the green industry back together after the lockdowns. It is the place where manufacturers and retailers, major players and start-ups meet. All these decision-makers are keen to promote their business, establish or revive important business contacts and get valuable impulses for dealing with the crisis. Some of the visitors to spoga+gafa 2021 told us in advance why a visit to the trade fair is worthwhile and how companies benefit from it. Everyone hopes for it and assumes that the world will certainly continue to develop in such a positive way. Enjoy!
