Luis Lopez Ballasteros served as Minister of Finance to King Ferdinand VII. Among his many accomplishments were the creation of the Madrid Stock Exchange, a new commercial law code, he also appointed overseas consuls and promoted the notion of a first exhibition in Spain.

He arranged for an 1826 royal decree to declare that a ‘Public Exhibition of Spanish Industry’ should be held annually, but his first event was never repeated.

One feature at the 1845 event was equipment that produced continuous paper with La Aurora of Girona making clear its machinery was like that shown in that year’s Paris exposition. Other Spanish operations demonstrated versions; these companies were based in Albacete, Guadalajara, Madrid, Salamanca and Tereul.

There was some attempt after the success of the British Great Exhibition to run a Great Spanish Exhibition of Industry and Arts in Madrid. It was first mooted in 1852 and the subject of further decrees in 1859, 1872 and 1881, but all came to nothing.

However, regional events were held in Barcelona in 1860 and 1871 and in Zaragoza in 1868.
