We were very excited to participate at this years’ gardiente and our first impression is excellent. The atmosphere here is welcoming, personable and relaxed, which makes for an enjoyable experience. Fitting for the outdoor sector. Visitors are approachable and curious, and we have already had many engaging conversations. Our colourful products seemed to have attracted a lot of attention too. We are very pleased with the number of visitors as well as the level of quality and will make sure to come again.

This is the first time for Vermobil at gardiente and we are very pleased with the results over the first two days. We have welcomed new customers to our stand and attracted passing customers, both are highly valuable to us. gardiente has met all our expectations. The hospitality, organisation, atmosphere and catering are all outstanding and setting the date at the beginning of September was a perfect choice.

It was wonderful to see the positive response gardiente received after an extended break. The industry really embraced the opportunity to return to the fair. The quality of visitors, in particular also international visitors, really speaks for gradiente as a specialist trade fair. It is a must-attend event for every garden furniture supplier. An unmissable opportunity to showcase their business and the newest trends. We will definitely come again.
Sven Wagner, National Sales Manager Germany, Tierra Outdoor
It was very important for us to be able to present our business and our products at a fair again and speak to our customers in person. Even more so as we are celebrating our company’s 75th anniversary this year. There is just no substitute for the immediate response you get face-to-face. We were pleased with the visitor numbers and enjoyed our experience at this year’s gardiente. We have been coming here for several years because we really value the welcoming and personable atmosphere, and the fact that there is plenty of time to have in-depth conversations with customers.
Christian Billmann, Head of Marketing, STERN
Solpuri are a long-standing exhibitor at gardiente and we always look forward to it. It is an invaluable opportunity to meet specialist retailers, whom we depend on as a premium supplier, and the fair provides the time and space to establish good relationships. It attracts the right customers and everyone welcomes the chance to finally speak to people in person again and experience products live and close-up.
What’s more, gardiente always creates a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Exhibitors and visitors alike are well looked after and catered for. The organisers make everyone feel welcome.

We premiered our “Schöner Wohnen” Collection at gardiente and couldn’t be happier with the response we got. It was a great success. The fair exceeded our expectations both in terms of visitor numbers and the level of engagement from everyone.
Michael Espenhahn, Director of Furniture, Schöner Wohnen-Kollektion
We are ever so glad to have participated at gardiente this year. The visitor numbers very much exceeded our expectations and the level of specialism and quality among trade buyers is impressive. We were also successful in directly generating orders at the fair. What made gardiente stand out for us was its welcoming and intimate atmosphere. It’s a small fair of the highest quality. The organisers were a pleasure to work with and took great care of us exhibitors. Gardiente truly was a successful experience for us and we will definitely return next year.
Burkhard Temme, Sales Manager, Niehoff Garden
We have very much enjoyed gardiente thus far and it has fulfilled all our expectations. Our Roadshow last year generated a lot of positive responses from our retailers, which is why we decided to go on the road again this year and take our Roadshow around Germany to meet our customers in person, in a Covid-safe environment. gardiente offers us a wonderful opportunity to showcase our products alongside other industry colleagues, which in turn gives specialist retailers the chance to meet different BBQ suppliers, all in one place. All our visitor timeslots are fully booked, so this is proving to be a successful fair for us.
Michel Vorhagen, CEO, Napoleon
This year’s gardiente was a great experience and wonderful opportunity for us as it allowed us to speak to many of our retail partners. We have a dedicated area set up for all BBQ specialists to present their new products, creating a convenient one-stop-shop for all retailers. This has allowed us to establish many good relationships with them.
Matthias Otto, CEO Monolith
We were elated that gardiente was back on the event calendar this year, and it was a successful visit for us. Showcasing our new collection here allowed us to attract new customers as well as re-establish relationships with previous customers. A great fair.
