Spoga-Gafa is the largest garden fair in the world and the number one event for us garden furniture makers to attend to.
Over 2,000 exhibitors from all over the world gather in Cologne, Germany every year in September to celebrate a full year of successes and share the latest trends for the upcoming season. We have been attending the Spoga-Gafa for the last three years with our Swingroo brand. Over these three years Spoga-Gafa has not only given us opportunity to present our specialty items to a targeted audience group, but also expanded our horizons to become better, bigger and more innovative every year. Contemporary trends have influenced us to challenge the status quo in swing making.
Spoga-Gafa 2017 took place on 3-5 September. The day before the exhibition is a busy day for us exhibitors, we get acquainted with our neighbours in the respective sectors and with the surroundings while we assemble our products and do the final touches on our sections. Then the morning of the fair finally arrives, and we are anxious to greet our first visitors. According to the official figures, 91% of the visitor-participants at the Spoga-Gafa are involved in procurement decisions, 40% of them were key decision-makers. 60% are from abroad, top countries being the Netherlands, Great Britain, Belgium and France.
The fair venue covers 226,000 m² and it takes hours to just walk through it, and days if one wanted a thorough look at it. After wandering through the endless halls of the fair for hours, we must say we get the best of customer reactions in our section: Feets up, faces relaxed and smiling, gently swinging on one of our swings. No fancy marketing words required really!
Spoga-Gafa 2018 will take place on 2-4 September in Cologne and we shall be welcoming you in our larger section this time, with our new designs and products and newly relaunched brand "Aida Swings"!
