spoga+gafa cancelled for 2021

by | May 6, 2021 | Community, News | 0 comments

The world’s largest garden lifestyle trade fair, spoga+gafa, is not going to be staged this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the related restrictions. The next trade fair will take place at the Cologne fair grounds from 19 to 21 June 2022.

Even if a survey that was carried out among international visitors and exhibitors at the end of February indicated that postponing the trade fair to August 2021 was an option, ultimately all parties involved have agreed that it will not be possible to conduct a trade fair that would do justice to the spoga+gafa brand at the beginning of August. The new date in June 2022 fits in perfectly with the ordering phase of all participating industries and correspondingly went down well with the exhibitors.

Together with its partners, spoga+gafa is now looking optimistically ahead and looks forward to being able to offer those framework conditions in June 2022 again, which the top international decision-makers, buyers and industry experts from all over the globe await in Cologne.

spoga+gafa will take place as a hybrid trade fair next year at the Cologne fair grounds as well as in digital space in the form of spoga+gafa @home. Once again in 2022, the trade fair will be the place for innovations, new products and trends – for exhibitors, buyers and decision-makers.

The application forms for spoga+gafa 2022 will be available to the exhibitors online soon.
