The first exhibitions in Zurich were staged in the "Hallenstadion" (indoor stadium). But this was much too big for small exhibitions. To ensure that events were not lost to competitors, the "Zürcher Spezial-Ausstellungen" cooperative decided, at the end of the 1950s, to build a hall of its own. The approach adopted back then would be inconceivable today.
