When Spoga+Gafa Trade Fair opens its doors from 1 to 3 September 2019, the world’s largest garden fair will once again present the current trends and theme worlds of the green industry. International exhibitors will present pioneering products from the world of the garden and offer a comprehensive overview of the new products for the coming outdoor season. The diversity of offers ranges from trendy outdoor furniture and design for garden equipment to smart garden appliances, high-tech grills, and outdoor kitchens, through to decorative accessories for outdoor living.
As an overriding trend, the trade fair is picking up on the forward-looking theme “City Gardening” this year and is thus setting new accents for designing and furnishing the green living room. A global megatrend that spoga+gafa and many exhibitors are addressing this year is the increasing urbanization. More and more people are moving into the city and they don’t want to do without their own green space and relaxation under the open air there either. So, with City Gardening the trade fair is setting a new main focus at the coming edition. Because for city dwellers, green areas are becoming increasingly important as a place of refuge from hectic, everyday life. “Today, the garden takes on the task of being a place to wind down and relax more than ever,” explained Stefan Lohrberg, Director of spoga+gafa. “It gives people the feeling of security and homeliness and is thus gaining a totally new significance.” Living in the city center and at the same time surrounded by greenery is no longer a contradiction. It is blossoming and flourishing in small gardens and on more and more balconies and roof terraces. Numerous exhibitors are presenting new products for the usage of urban open spaces at this year’s spoga+gafa.
