Event programme of spoga+gafa
Inspiration and information

In addition to more than 2,100 exhibitors from over 60 countries, trade visitors to spoga+gafa from 2 to 4 September 2018 in Cologne can expect themed worlds and added value for the green sector. The event programme supplements the exhibitors' product innovations and highlights with exhibitions, specialist lectures and networking opportunities as well as practical examples for business implementation in garden centres, DIY stores and the like.
spoga+gafa creates its own theme worlds for the green living room and repeatedly picks up on current developments in the industry. The latest technology trends for balconies, terraces and gardens at a glance are offered by the IVG Power Place battery and the Smart Gardening world in Hall 6 (Stand A 20/ D 23). At the centre of the theme island is an event area where there will be daily presentations on current technology developments, new products and relevant trade topics under titles such as "Smart Home and Smart Garden belong together - new business models through networking" or "Akku und Smart - new technologies as drivers in the garden market".
Grilling, frying, roasting outdoors is a continuing trend that is constantly evolving. The outdoor kitchen world in Hall 8 offers hardware, and renowned exhibitors will be presenting the latest form of cooking in the garden - from purist, clear and modern furniture to accessories and appliances! Here, cooking events invite you to discover with all your senses.
Trade visitors can look forward to a premiere in the furniture sector (Hall 10.2 garden unique forum, Stand R50): this year's spoga+gafa is taking a look into the future with the internationally curated trend show "Outdoor Furniture". Selected exhibitors present trend-setting and groundbreaking outdoor furniture for the coming season. The trend islands are framed by the special show "Icons of Outdoor Furniture", which in turn place them in a temporal context. They take you on a journey through time on the basis of the best-selling and most stylish garden furniture from current and former exhibitors.
