Europe’s largest trade fair breaks all records. GaLaBau 2018 – a great success!
The 23rd GaLaBau trade fair closed with a new record number of visitors. Over 70,000 trade visitors attended the gathering of the ‘green sector’ in Nuremberg from 12th-15th September.
With 1,253 exhibitors in 14 exhibition halls, the trade fair emphasised its high profile in the GaLaBau sector and recorded an increase in exhibitors of over 10% compared to 2016.
The trade visitors also came from the garden, landscape and open space construction sectors, landscape architecture and planners from federal, state and local authorities.
On the exhibitor side, one in four companies came from outside Germany, and in terms of trade visitors, 10% travelled to Nuremberg from outside Germany to attend this late summer event.
The joint stand of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Großbaumverpflanzung (German association for mature tree transplantation) and the Opitz mature tree moving service was also very popular during the four days of the fair. Many interesting conversations took place, old contacts were renewed and new ones were forged.
