GaLaBau 2024 – Latest News

 NürnbergMesse GmbH has shared its intention to bring back the international trade show as a live event in its regular slot in September. The new official dates have been confirmed for September 11th – September 14th, 2024, and exhibitors are already able to buy tickets. Messe Nuremberg will not employ for the time being cutting-edge COVID-19 protective measures. This is due to the removal of the related domestic restrictions. GaLaBau 2024 is already praised as a fantastic opportunity to effectively conduct business. Currently, the country does not have travel restrictions in place.


GaLaBau services the needs of the urban green and open spaces. The international trade show is a leader in Europe and has a strong influence around the world. Its name is an abbreviation for the gardening, landscaping, and building sectors. The very first edition was held back in 1974 and since then it’s been a major marketplace and a well of inspiration for designing parks and other spaces in city environments. GaLaBau is where architects, designers, and landscapers showcase new ideas and creativity. Editions trace new trends as they emerge and offer trade visitors access to all the latest machinery and equipment across the entire value chain. The product portfolio extends to golf course construction, leisure facilities, playgrounds, plant cultivation, environment protection, plant protection, building utensils, construction, cemetery equipment and so much more.


GaLaBau gathers together professionals once every two years in Nuremberg, Germany, where the editions run for a total of four days. The biannual schedule allows for exhibitors to develop new products and every edition brings only innovations and emerging trends. GaLaBau typically takes place in early fall, usually in the middle of September. NürnbergMesse GmbH takes on the duties as the official organiser and the international trade show is based out of Messe Nuremberg. Doors are open only to trade visitors. There are no official working hours as of yet, so be sure to check in on the official site for more information. The exhibition centre has a large parking lot available, but if you’re not driving, there are other options for commuting. There’s a metro station that offers reliable service throughout the day with connections to the city centre and the airport.  

What Are People Saying? 

• “At GaLaBau there is always a really nice cohort of visitors with whom you can have very good, personal exchanges. This year, visitor traffic was very strong over all four days of the event. We also noticed that a lot of decision-makers were in attendance this year, as we were able to sign a lot of direct contracts at the fair itself,” – Hanns Markus Renz, Business Manager Sales & Field Marketing Department, Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V.

• “I have just one thing to say about GaLaBau 2018: it was an absolute cracker! We were having one conversation after another from beginning to end. The demand for our products was huge. Thanks to the funding for young innovative companies from the Federal Ministry, we benefited from having a great position in the pavilion,” – Torsten Reuß, Managing Director, TOSSTEC KG;

• “As one of Germany's biggest manufacturers of street furniture we consider GaLaBau to be our most important trade fair for nurturing contacts and raising our profile,” – Ulrich Träger, Managing Director, Nusser Stadtmöbel GmbH & Co. KG
