GALABAU 2016 SET FOR

SEPTEMBER

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.
