The first HOGA took place in 1950. Many factors have influenced the growth of the exhibition and made it what it is today. In the 1960s, the German economic miracle and the growing importance of tourism created an economic boom. The result: Full employment.

Since then, more and more people have been able to afford to go on holiday and eat in restaurants. Guest workers came to Germany, too. They brought their culture to the hotel and catering industry and helped the market to become more international. At the same time, the exhibition business became more and more important. So one thing led to another and this is how HOGA established in the world of gastronomes and hoteliers.

What about HOGA today?

The HOGA is a good place for professionals all around the world. Young cooks can demonstrate their skills in different competitions and prove themselves to an expert jury.
