At the request of the industry, Koelnmesse has moved the date for Spoga + Gafa to the first half of the year. In future, this means that the largest garden lifestyle trade fair in the world will be held at a time more convenient for orders by large segments of the industry.
With the entire area almost fully booked, the current developments around Covid-19 and the economic situation turned to be complicated. The news about new cases of infection in Germany played a role, as well. The current travel situation is still uncertain, too – particularly at the intercontinental level. The news about new cases of infection in Germany played a role, as well.
For this reason, Koelnmesse reassessed the overall situation and decided that it was best to respond to the cancellations and wishes of a large number of industry exhibitors and visitors by not implementing Spoga + Gafa 2020. The next edition is thus set to be held from May 30th – June 1st, 2021.
