Hamburg had been occupied by the French from 1806 to 1814, becoming part of the German Confederation in 1815. It is mooted by some historians that the inhabitants of Hamburg learned of the benefits of exhibitions from their occupiers.

Promenading on the Jungfernstieg of Hamburg in 1836

Three commercial exhibitions were run as ‘Hamburg Craft and Industry Production’ fairs. These were held in 1832, 1834 and 1838, all of them were said to have earned substantial profits.

The exhibition venue used was the Concert Hall of the City Theatre; it had been completed in 1827. These exhibitions were interrupted by the ‘Great Fire of Hamburg’ in 1842, across four days in May it destroyed many homes, businesses, churches, schools and public buildings. Losses of 100m marks led to the invention of reinsurance.

Hamburg ran no further large exhibitions until 1865.
