In just a few months, historic Cologne, Germany, will play host to the world’s largest lawn, garden and outdoor living trade fair, SPOGA/GAFA.
The SPOGA/GAFA trade fair will take place Aug. 31-Sept. 1 at the Koelnmesse exhibition center and include thousands of exhibitors from across 10 different lawn, garden and outdoor living product categories ranging from grills to farm and ranch.
The NRHA is also extending an invitation to any U.S. or Canadian retailers who would like to attend this event as part of an NRHA contingent. This group will receive VIP show tours, access to receptions and a special local tour of home improvement and garden centers.
Any retailers interested should contact NRHA’s Dan Tratensek at DanT@nrha.org.
As the show approaches, the SPOGA/GAFA team has put together a list of some of the latest trends they’ve identified as having an impact on the lawn, garden and outdoor living arena.
