International Garden Fair to Highlight Outdoor Trends

Spoga+gafa, the annual international garden fair, will be showcasing the latest in modern lawn and garden trends, such as stylish multifunctional furniture and new technology.

The event, which is scheduled for Sept. 3-5 in Cologne, Germany, will be spread across about 2.4 million square feet of show floor space.

At the garden fair, more than 2,000 exhibitors from 59 countries will showcase innovations and trends from around the world.

Products will be divided into exhibits, including Garden Living, Garden Unique, Garden Creation & Care and Garden BBQ.

Space-saving, modern and multipurpose outdoor furniture will be a dominant focus at the show, according to information from Koelnmesse.

In addition, pots that double as planters and outdoor storage, patio umbrellas that have lights and heaters and convertible furniture are among the trends being highlighted.

Spoga+gafa 2017 will also showcase high-tech gardening tools, such as autonomous lawn mowers, as well as trends and new technology in outdoor lighting, lawn care, pools, garden irrigation and smart grilling devices. Manufacturers will present and demonstrate their products, and international experts will offer lectures in the technology area.

“Spoga+gafa unites the entire diversity of garden products,” Katharina C. Hamma, chief operating officer for event organizer Koelnmesse GmbH, says in a statement. “In the garden furniture, grill and outdoor sections, it has the world’s largest coherent [offering].”
