The last Hungarian shows of 2010 were held on 27th and 28th of November, two International Shows in a weekend. Saturday was the Budapest Grand Prix, and Sunday the Derby show. The Derby is a special show, a special competition just for dogs who were born in the last year (now 11-23 months old).

The Derby winner title traditionally can be won on the last show of the year in Hungary. It is very valuable, because a dog has a chance to win it once in his life.

These shows were the 12th and 13th International shows in Hungary, with good entries, 1,630 (GP) and 1,860 (Derby); the usual Intl. Show are about 1300-1500 entries only. The exhibitors came from 20 countries, not just locally, but from Scandinavia (from Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark, too), Western Europe, France and Spain. There were more exhibitors (what is a trend in Europe nowadays) from Ukraine and Russia, too. The judges’ panel was international; there were 29 rings, in 11 rings out of 29 were foreign judges. They were: Martha Heine (D), Diane Ritchie-Steward (IRL), Maria Luise Doppelreiter (A), Otto Schimpf (A), Günther Ehrenreich (A), Marek Levandowski (PL), Ed E. Bivin (USA), Francesco Cochetti (I), Carlos-Fernandez Renau (E), Dusan Paunovic (SRB), George Kostopoulos (GR).

The all show was in one, great hall on the Hungexpo, Budapest Fair Centre.
