The UK exhibitor group at this year’s Gardenex-organised British pavilion within spoga+gafa is offering buyers from across the world a multitude of new product launches at the show.
Spoga+gafa, the world’s leading trade fair for the garden and leisure sector, returns to Cologne, Germany on 19-21 June 2022 after a two-year absence caused by the pandemic.
The British pavilion will be located in a prime spot in Hall 9 (stand D-046a), where the experienced Gardenex team will be manning the industry information stand within the pavilion, offering comprehensive export advice to suppliers and market information plus new product information to show visitors.
When spoga+gafa was last held in 2019, the organisers reported attendance levels of more than 40,000 trade visitors, made up of top decision-makers from 124 countries, underlining the international significance of gafa+spoga.
The spoga section of the event covers garden and leisure (barbecues and outdoor kitchens, heaters and garden furniture); while the gafa element covers all aspects of practical gardening, gift and decoration.
The show attracts garden product buyers from garden centres, DIY stores, webshops/mail order, supermarkets and a diverse assortment of other retailers that include gardening within their range.
