Berlin just has it all – except an international event format, that connects all relevant players and transfers knowledge.

The city's importance in the fintech and finance industry is characterized by a combination of a vibrant startup scene, abundant capital, a supportive innovation environment and a broad network of events and collaborations.

All these factors make Berlin a leading center for financial technology in Europe.

And this is where we come in: We believe it’s time to bring everyone together, which is why we introduce FIBE - Germany’s first international fintech festival.

Why Berlin?

Who is FIBE?

Berlin has been a trade fair destination for 200 years, and has been one of the most important such hubs for many decades. Messe Berlin – the state’s own trade fair company – conceives, markets and organises hundreds of live events every year. It strives to be an outstanding host for visitors at all events, generate optimal business stimuli, and provide fair conditions for everyone. This concept is reflected in the company slogan: Messe Berlin – Hosting the World.
