Gardenex organises the UK pavilion at key international garden trade shows.  In 2023, we will participate in the following:

IPM Essen

Essen, Germany January 24, 2023 - January 27, 2023

IPM Essen is the international trade fair for plants and the world’s leading trade fair for horticulture.  It is the only specialist event of its kind to cover the entire value chain of plants, including production, technology, floristry, garden features and point of sale.

1,538 exhibitors from 46 nations and over 54,000 visitors from all over the world attended the 2020 edition of the show, with around 40% of these coming from outside Germany.

If you are looking to sell into the world’s plant sector, IPM Essen is a must attend exhibition for you!

The Commercial Horticultural Association (CHA), a partner association of Gardenex, is organising the UK pavilion at IPM Essen.



Cologne, Germany June 18, 2023 - June 20, 2023

spoga+gafa is the world’s premier trade fair for garden hardware and leisure products.  The 2022 show featured around 1,000 exhibitors and occupied 10 halls.  Truly international, it attracted 25,000 trade visitors from 112 countries, with 67% coming from outside Germany.  If you are a UK-based company looking to export, or improve your export sales, in Europe and beyond, this is the show for you!

Gardenex is organising the UK pavilion at spoga+gafa again in June 2023.  Please contact Lydia Stubbs at Gardenex, if you are interested in taking part.

New! Gardenex British Group exhibitors will also be able to display a product in the Boulevard of Ideas walkway which links all the halls and entrances to the show.  To qualify, please return your application to Lydia as soon as possible!
