Agricultural and industrial exhibitions grew and expanded in terms of participating firms, the number of visitors, and exhibition turnover. At the same time, however, more restrictions emerged for these exhibitions.

These exhibitions were important events in Kaunas and attracted many people to the city. Therefore, preparation usually started well in advance, sometimes even a year before the opening. Pavilions were built and repaired; the Exhibition Square and the entire city were decorated; and visitor accommodations for the exhibition and additional cultural events were organized in the city.
