The article reports on Spoga, the International Trade Fair for Sport, Camping and Garden Lifestyle. The exhibition held at Cologne, Germany from September 5-7, 2004. Some 640 companies gathered at the Spoga exhibition to show off their latest designs and almost 48,000 people from 102 countries visited the show. Exhibitors reported strong placing of orders. Although plastic resin was prominently seen on many stands, companies are moving away from the cheap and cheerful approach in favor of better quality materials and design. The next Spoga will be organized at the same venue from 4-6 September 2005. INSET: Fact file.
