The preparations for spoga horse spring 2018 are in full swing, the big names of the international equestrian sport industry have already confirmed their participation at the event from 4 to 6 February 2018 in Cologne at an early stage. Now it is down to the trade visitors to plan their stay in Cologne in due time: Admission tickets at the advance sale price, special conditions offered by Deutsche Bahn and Airline Mobility partners as well as the services of Koelnmesse for booking hotels enable simple and reasonably priced travel planning. The Cathedral city of Cologne rounds off the trade fair experience with its sights and event offers.
From the end of November until 3 February 2018, the admission tickets for spoga horse spring are available at the reduced advanced sale price at www.spogahorse.com. If the trade visitors purchase online they can also save on the travel costs: In addition to the admission ticket they receive a further ticket, which they can use to travel on the buses and trains in and around Cologne free of charge. In combination with the admission ticket the travel ticket is valid for the Rhein-Sieg public transport network (VRS). This also includes the transfer from Cologne/Bonn Airport to the fair grounds with the suburban railway (No. 13 S-Bahn).
In 60 minutes from Europe to Cologne
In a similar way, the international trade visitors can travel to the Cologne/Bonn Airport from many European major cities just as fast and conveniently as from the airport to the fair grounds. For example, the central location means one can travel to Cologne from London in just over 60 minutes. The Lufthansa Groups offers exclusive prices and conditions. Koelnmesse recommends national trade visitors to travel by train: With the Deutsche Bahn Special a second class ticket for a one-way journey by train costs only Euro 49.50 from any DB train station in Germany. Koelnmesse works together with partner hotels to ensure simple and fast hotel bookings. Up to five rooms can be booked directly online, the hotel service team will be glad to assist for individual bookings for six rooms upwards.

Cologne, churches, carnival – always worth a visit
In addition to spoga horse, which presents the entire international equestrian sport industry to the trade visitors in one hall during the day, the city of Cologne perfectly rounds off the trade fair experience in the evening: The Old Town with its numerous breweries and restaurants, which invite the guests to enjoy Cologne brewery and eating culture, lies just two trams stops away. As does the landmark of the city, the Cologne Cathedral. Furthermore the venue date of spoga horse spring offers a very special festivity: Carnival in Cologne is just round the corner, a very unique experience! We recommend newcomers and locals to attend the Immisitzung (Carnival session) at Bürgerhaus Stollwerk on 6 February 2018. The Immisitzung stands for Carnival cabaret with fast-paced stage comedy, international music and a high-spirited party mood and even people who aren’t from Cologne should also be able to understand it. A successful conclusion to spoga horse spring 2018.
