“Responsible Gardens” is the key theme of spoga+gafa 2024, the largest garden and BBQ trade fair in the world. In Cologne from 16 to 18 June 2024, the global garden lifestyle and BBQ industry will be focusing on the responsibility it bears regarding the current and future challenges and their solutions relating to the role the garden plays in society. Together with the green industry, spoga+gafa will place the centre of attention on the different levels of responsible behaviour in and around private green spaces from the points of view of the manufacturers, suppliers and consumers.
“The focus of the topic is the responsibility the green industry bears regarding the role the garden plays in society. Together with our exhibitors and visitors, spoga+gafa will find the answers to these questions,” explained Stefan Lohrberg, Director of spoga+gafa.
Resource-saving gardening, fairly produced garden products, low-emission BBQ technologies, climate-friendly garden care and irrigation, but also a responsible rapport between garden owners will be especially emphasised at spoga+gafa 2024 and the relevance of the topic will be presented and discussed in various formats. Stefan Lohrberg: “The more responsibly we treat private green spaces, the more social and personally-relevant our gardens, balconies and terraces will become. That is our to-do list for the coming years.”
spoga+gafa has already been staged under an overriding key topic that takes the current industry developments and socially-relevant topics into account every year since 2017. The key theme additionally creates a coherent experience for the exhibitors and visitors and thus an increased identification with spoga+gafa.
Already ten months before the start of the next event it is still apparent just how significant the largest garden and BBQ trade fair is for the gardening industry. In August 2023 spoga+gafa is recording a significant increase in the number of exhibitors compared to the previous events. Interested companies can still secure their participation at spoga+gafa 2024 at special conditions until 31.08.2023.
