Together climate-fit for the future …

… is the focus topic of GaLaBau 2022. Against climate change as a major global challenge of our time, the green industry makes an active contribution in many areas of gardening and landscaping. Innovations, trends and products that have a positive effect on the topic of climate change will be presented at GaLaBau 2022. The stands of participating exhibitors and all relevant supporting program items are marked with the seal of the GREEN-BLUE PATH, which thus offers visitors visual orientation.
