Boarding is imminent!
Because the success of an event also depends on its location, it's time to reveal the great location that will host the first edition of Gourmet Discovery. Embark with us on the other side of the Elbe and discover or rediscover the sumptuous port of Hamburg. Accessible by sea or land, the other side of the river has a very special atmosphere, where history, industrial culture and fresh sea air are combined. The port of Hamburg is a real goldmine with a very special, austere charm. In the heart of the city, gigantic containers stand out in the industrial landscape of the port. A building with red brick walls stands out in the landscape, contrasting with the cranes and ships. It is hangar number 52A.
Over the course of time
The Schuppen 52 shed, which is listed as a historical monument, goes back to the imperial era. For many years it protected large quantities of goods from the weather of Hamburg. The Schuppen 52 is particularly known for having housed spices, which still give off an air of otherworldly fragrances. Before being transported across Europe, the spices were stored in the imposing shed, which is one of the few that has been preserved from that time. The Schuppen 52 was later renovated by Gerresheim Serviert, a restoration company, which turned the former warehouse into a real party and meeting place. The entrance to the 6,000 m² building is a wooden construction with exposed beams. A real gem of an industrial building, between tradition and modernity, hosting all kinds of events: weddings, opera, birthdays, gala evenings and many more. The place is full of beautiful memories, reinforcing its special charm.
The gourmet meeting place
Located in the city of Hamburg, which offers an interesting lifestyle and a diversified culinary landscape, the shed where once pepper corns, cocoa beans and nutmegs were stored is full of history. Such potential should be honoured, hence our desire to bring together the major players in the delicatessen market in this magical place. Passion, creativity and a love of the products drive our growing community. From gastronomy to delicatessen and concept stores, Gourmet Discovery aims to become a real catalyst for innovation, meetings and exchanges. A short format, hand-picked exhibitors and visitors, that is the promise of this event. Let's keep the traditions alive and let the magic of Schuppen 52 work!
