Participants of the art show in early November include companies with objects of art already n their premises, and participants that decided to showcase works of young talents from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) on occasion of the show.

Visitors are offered a wide artistic spectrum. At Hapag Lloyd, guests will find historic ship models, posters and illustrations from the early days of the cruise and marine paintings. At the Hotel Grand Elysée, works by artists of the Hamburg Secession and North German realists are to be inspected. At the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, works of painters and sculptors of the Free Academy of Arts will be exhibited. Thus, exhibits will often have a clear reference to the Hanseatic city.
