Hamburg Messe und Congress has decided to discontinue HansePferd Hamburg. Since its premiere in 1987, the HansePferd Hamburg has put great stock into providing an attractive offering, and into the presentation of different horse and pony breeds, riding styles, and training methods. All this has demanded a complex infrastructure and the involvement of a large number of qualified personnel. The costs associated with this can no longer be reasonably passed on to exhibitors and visitors in the form of stand rentals and entrance fees.
This decision has not been easy for us. The events team along with all our partners have worked with great passion and perseverance to transform a small horse fair into a top-class event for equestrian sport.
We know that HansePferd has many fans who will be disappointed and saddened by this decision. As a company, however, we are obliged to, and need to operate responsibly.
We would like to thank you all very much for your many years of loyalty and solidarity.
Your Hamburg Trade Fair and Congress
