Exhibitors and visitors enjoy spoga + gafa on an annual basis. The international trade fair arrives in early June at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. The event is put together by Koelnmesse GmbH in close collaboration with IVG - Industrieverband Garten. Editions are typically three-day affairs and doors are open only to trade visitors. The exhibition centre is open to visitors from 09:00 am in the morning during all three days until 18:00 pm in the evening. The last day wraps up earlier and doors close at 17:00 pm. Making the trip to Koelnmesse couldn’t be easier thanks to its very central location in Cologne and the grounds have a large parking. Public transport is plentiful.
