Inspiring discussions and lectures, a fantastic line-up of brands as well as individual exhibitors and diverse award-winning innovations: That is the resumé of spoga horse 2023. Over the course of three successful trade show days, around 6,200 visitors from 65 countries came together at the international trading platform of the equestrian industry to inform themselves about the comprehensive offer for the horse and rider. 320 exhibitors namely presented the current and future trends of the industry. The hybrid leading trade fair concept that rests on the three pillars - exhibition, content and networking - was now implemented on its original venue date for the first time. The "spoga horse TOP INNOVATIONS" competition, lectures and panel discussions, Fashion Walks, start-up pitches and many more highlights could be watched live or subsequently called up on demand. The response of the exhibitors was thoroughly positive, which was also reflected by the figures. In this connection, at 64 percent the share of international exhibitors is particularly pleasing. "The strong result shows that the readiness of the exhibitors to assert themselves at the trade fair has totally paid off," emphasised Oliver Frese, Chief Operating Officer of Koelnmesse GmbH. "We find it important particularly in these times to stage spoga horse on its customary annual date in February again. That gives the industry plannability and security and will enable spoga horse to grow further in the future too," he added. The exhibiting companies proved to be more than satisfied after the trade fair closed too.
