Press releases about GaLaBau

September 2016
In demand: statements on GaLaBau 2016
From 14 to 17 September 2016, GaLaBau, International Trade Fair for Urban Green and Open Spaces, was held at the exhibition centre Nuremberg. The GaLaBau PR Team made its way around the exhibition halls and asked several exhibitors how successful the fair had been for them:

Uwe Küchenmeister, Divisional Sales Manager, Etesia, France
“Our stand was heavily frequented, in fact by trade visitors from all over the world. In addition to interested parties from Europe, we even had Chinese and Indians coming to obtain information. We conducted numerous intensive discussions with horticulture/landscape gardening entrepreneurs and specialist dealers and retailers. For our sector GaLaBau is the absolute top fair. We will of course be back here again in 2018.”

Martin Schmitz, Sales Manager, Kubota GmbH, Germany
“GaLaBau 2016 went very well for us. Particularly on the first two days of the fair we already had numerous good sales discussions early in the day. But in general, GaLaBau scored once again with its very high visitor quality. It is and remains for us the leading fair for the horticulture and landscape gardening sectors.”

Tobias Brenker, European Market Manager, TREX Company, Inc., USA
“GaLaBau is the optimal platform for the European market. We were exhibiting for the first time and were able to conduct very many specific discussions immediately. What we particularly liked was the visitor mix: not only numerous specialist retailers came to our stand but also architects. As a result, we are expecting good post-fair business and will be participating again at the fair in 2018.”

Georg Engelke, Tree Nursery Manager/Sales, Baumschulen Lappen, Germany
“Our main focus at GaLaBau lies in cultivating our regular customer base. And we totally succeeded in doing this again in 2016. In addition, we were able to acquire a few new customers and were aware of increased internationality among the trade visitors overall. There is no doubt at all that we will be participating again in 2018.”

Jeroen Reinderink, Account Manager Germany, Yalp, Netherlands
“We have been active on the German market for just two years now with our interactive playground and sport products and are very satisfied with business at the fair. Our products simply have to be experienced. The playground theme sector at GaLaBau offers the perfect platform for this. As a first-time exhibitor, we were delighted with the great interest shown by the visitors and were able to conclude several direct business deals at the event. What else could you want?”

Holger Jansen, Management Board, Götterfunken, Germany
“I already know GaLaBau from the early days, but I was here for the first time with my own innovative design company. I'm so thankful for the sponsorship by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, because otherwise we would not have been able to afford participation at this outstanding trade fair. The quality and quantity of the discussions was fantastic. We welcomed innumerable importers, but also interested horticulturists/landscape gardeners and architects to our stand and our information material had already run out before the end of the fair. GaLaBau is and remains the leading fair for the green sector.”

Katja Lehmann, Greenkeeping Division, DEULA Rheinland GmbH Bildungszentrum, Germany
“With our range we service a niche segment at GaLaBau. Nevertheless, it is a must-attend event for us. The number of visitors on our stand was manageable, but for that the discussion quality was top. In addition, we met several former greenkeeper trainees and conducted network cultivation. We will be back here again in 2018. “
