spoga+gafa 2016: Top results for the early bird campaign


* 8 percent more applications compared to the same period of the previous year
* Internationality: Companies from 56 countries confirm their participation

spoga+gafa 2015 has hardly closed its doors and the preparations for next year's international garden fair are already in full swing. And the result is very positive: At the end of the early bird campaign on 25 September, the trade fair organisers had received 8 percent more applications than for the same period of the previous year - 80 percent of the planned exhibition space has already been sold. Companies from 56 countries are among the first applications. Planning spoga+gafa 2016 early (4 to 6 September) has several advantages for the exhibitors: Early bookers can reserve the desired stand area and secure an optimal location at spoga+gafa 2016. At the same time, participants who book during the first registration phase can benefit from a price advantage of up to 18 percent.

With applications across all four segments garden living, garden bbq, creation & care and garden unique, the result of the so-called 'early bird' phase also reflects spoga+gafa's wide selection of exhibits. A high number of brand manufacturers accordingly took advantage of the first registration phase. The companies that have already confirmed their participation include Alexander Rose, Barbecook, Barlow Tyrie, Beefeater, Biohort, Birchmeier, BM-Massivholz, EDM. Romberg & Sohn (GmbH & Co.) KG, Domiziani, Doppler, Edelman, EFSA, Elho, Emsa, Felco, FITT S.p.A., Freund Victoria, Garden Impressions, Gardenex, GGP, Glatz, Gloria, Hozelock, Ikra, Intex, Juwel, Landgard, LotusGrill, Outdoor BV, Outdoorchef, Hartmann, Houe, Kaemingk, Keter Plastic, Koopman International B.V., Lafuma, MESTO Spritzenfabrik, MWH, Nardi, Napoleon Grills, Einheitserdenwerke Patzer, Rösle, ScanCom, Schaffner, Scheurich, Selecta-Klemm, SIT Mobilia, Soendgen, SVR Development SA, Tielbürger and Weber Stephen.
