At the end of the year, the BSI e.V. and Koelnmesse are terminating their long-standing cooperation for the events spoga horse and spoga+gafa.
In future, Koelnmesse has said it is going to rely more on personal and direct contact to all of the customer groups for the alignment of spoga horse. This approach will allow the trade fair in future to react fast to market changes and thus offer the industry a dynamic platform. "We thank the German Association of the Sports Goods Industry e.V. and the persons responsible for the good collaboration that extended over many years," stated Catja Caspary, Vice President Koelnmesse. "With the coming spoga horse we will in many respects be writing a new chapter. We are looking forward to this challenge and will of course remain in close exchange with the member companies of BSI."
The collaboration between Koelnmesse and the German Association of the Sports Goods Industry e.V. (BSI) existed for 45 years. Since the start of the collaboration in 1974, the demands of the market and industry and the needs of the exhibitors and visitors have changed significantly. The interest in spoga horse is high, as are the expectations in the outcome of a trade fair participation. "For us as the organizers this means checking task for task whether the concept is well-accepted and that the needs of the majority of our customers are fulfilled," explained Caspary.
spoga horse autumn was also completely fully booked in 2019 and with an attendance of 6,500 visitors confirmed its status as the industry's leading trade fair. The booking figures for the spoga horse FASHION DAYS February 8-10, 2020, are demonstrating the high demand for this format, which is especially tailor-made to satisfy the needs of the equestrian sport fashion manufacturers, while at the same time offering the manufacturers of horse supplies and accessories an attractive presentation platform.
