The Hotel receptionist man, Swen was very very nice to me, more than helpful and was a real pleasure to deal with him. Alexandra, his colleague also she was very nice, even tough I only deal with her for several hours, before I left the hotel , back to Romania.

About the event
It’s official. The decision has been made to cancel spoga + gafa 2021 after several postponements due to the coronavirus pandemic. There are still a lot of travel restrictions and a ban on large-scale events in Germany, which makes a live edition impossible. Koelnmesse GmbH have announced new dates for spoga + gafa 2022 – June 19th until June 21st. The upcoming trade fair will be hybrid with the in-person portion held at Koelnmesse in Cologne supplemented by the digital platform spoga+gafa @home. Organisers are hopeful that waiting another year will be enough for the events industry to return in full force. Digital offers are not as effective as trade shows and exhibitions at driving business.
In Europe, one of the biggest international fairs for the garden and leisure industry is spoga+gafa. This leading garden event is based in Cologne, Germany and arrives every year in early summer at Koelnmesse. The annual event lasts for a total of two days in early June. One of the big selling points for spoga+gafa is its international nature with a solid mixture of local buyers and exhibitors and international brands. Exhibitors are able to look at their competitors and also see what’s new all over the world. You’re always first to learn about fresh trends, ideas and innovations that will shape the upcoming year. This makes spoga+gafa a promising procurement platform, where new products get all the attention and product launches are successful.
If you’re looking to create buzz for product launches and gain interest from new markets, spoga+gafa creates the perfect conditions. The international exhibition features guided tours, which bring a steady stream of qualified leads right to your booth. Exhibitors register a large number of direct sales and sales leads. spoga+gafa is the perfect place to reconnect with existing customers and network with buyers from all over Europe and as far as Asia and North America. Names you encounter include GIGA International, the Polish Garden Centers Association (PSCO), Dinger's Garden Centre Cologne, furniture store Jäger and Garten-Center Kremer. The product portfolio is also quite rich and features water technology, biological building materials, garden furniture, green houses, chemical products, lighting technology and garden furniture.

Here visitors are able to learn more about sustainable markets and climate protection. Other subjects include the role of peat-free soils and upcycling. The other major forum is Forum Technology, which features interviews, CEO Talks and lectures. You can expect to dive deep into the Internet of Things in trade, standards for smart gardening and the next generation of battery-powered garden appliances.

Whenever I was travelling to Dubai, I booked the Crown Plaza Dubai on Sh Zayed Rd. (Our office is in the next tower)
The Hotel is in the style of the late eighties, but in perfect condition. I like this atmosphere and I hope they will conserve
it as it is. The staff is always friendly and helpful - first class.
We will be in touch.
Nick Lloyd is very helpful, and friendly. He replies to questions quickly and informatively. We did not end up booking anything due to other reasons, but I would recommend Nick Lloyd to anyone wanting to book accommodation for conferences.
the clients feedback is very plain and simple: they say that everything went fine. :-)
Thank you very much
It's a budget hotel do not expect much, they provide clean room but small room size. The hotel not far from Messe Duesseldorf by car but if you want to take public transport between the hotel and Messe Duesseldorf it's not convenient. But if you prepare to take taxi so it's not far from the place about 15 minutes
Thank you for your email and please note that we have been very happy with accommodation during ITB 2018 and your service.
With very best regards,
Ms Iren Ghahramanyan
