spoga+gafa is the world's premier annual trade exhibition for garden hardware and leisure products. The show features over 2,000 exhibitors from 57 countries and covers an area of 225,000m². It is truly international, attracting around 39,000 trade visitors from 106 countries, with over 60% of visitors coming from outside Germany. If you are a UK company looking to enter or improve your export sales into Europe and beyond, spoga+gafa is the show for you!

Germany is the largest market for garden products in Europe with sales estimated at around €18.3 billion in 2015. The British group that exhibited in 2016 saw buyers from countries across Europe, but also distributors and retailers from markets such as the USA, Canada, Dubai, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand and Australia!

spoga+gafa covers all aspects of gardening but is focussed on garden hardware. The organisers divide the show into the following product sectors: Garden Unique (premium garden furniture), Garden Creation & Care (plants & flowers, biochemistry & soils, machines & accessories, tools & accessories, garden equipment & sheds, water & lighting), Garden Living (garden furniture, garden equipment, decoration), Garden BBQ & Fun (grills & barbecues, sports & games, camping & leisure).

The show attracts a broad spectrum of buyers including garden centres, DIY stores, mail order and internet sales companies, supermarkets, discounters, department stores and other general retailers, specialist furniture retailers, landscapers and many international distributors and wholesalers of garden products from around the world – including some of the leading players from the UK.
