GALABAU 2016 SET FOR
From September 14 -17 this year, GaLaBau, the leading
International Trade Fair for Urban Green and Open Spaces
will once again be exhibiting the latest products and services
for the industry. Based in the exhibition centre inNuremberg,
Germany, the trade fair is for all those who plan, build and
maintain gardens, parks, open spaces, sports grounds, play
grounds and golf courses.
Preparations for GaLaBau have been encouraging for
organisers, with almost twice as many companies registered
to exhibit than the previous fair in 2014.
“Of course, the exact number of exhibitorswill not be known
until the fair takes place, but we are expecting around 1400
international companies,” said event organiser, StefanDittrich.
Attendees of the 2016 fair can expect to see a few new
features in response to growing trends and developments.
For example, in response to the trend of the horticulturalist/
landscaper acting as a lifestyle adviser for clients, GaLaBau
will be running a smaller presentation of individually
designed garden set ups for the industry to explore.
As always, the popular Meeting Point Gold will remain
as a key feature of the trade fair to act as a meeting place
for greenkeepers and golf course managers. There will also
be presentation areas showcasing maintenance and soil-processing
machinery including lawnmowers, excavators, shredders and small
construction machines on real lawns and soil.
“For many years GaLaBau has been the leading trade fair in
Europe,” Mr Dittrich said.
“The European industry is continuing to do well and we are
feeling this through the increasing internationalisation of the event.”
With a high quality of both exhibitors and visitors alike and
preparations well under way, GaLaBau looks set to continue its
success as one of the industry’s best trade fairs.
