Germany’s largest fintech festival returns to Hamburg from November 4 to 9 2019

The digitisation of finance is your job? Do you want to keep up with the latest developments in the banking and fintech industry? Are you more cooperation than competition and are looking to learn from other industry players? Then come to Hamburg in the week from 4 to 9 November 2019 – for Germany’s very own Fintech Week.

Fintech Week Logo 2019

A week in Germany’s northern metropolis, rich with the best in fintech thought and innovation: Started in 2016, Fintech Week is the annual event that brings together aspiring newcomers, fintech professionals, and established players from banking and insurance to discuss the future of finance. It has become Germany’s largest fintech event with more than 1,500 visitors from banks, insurance companies, fintechs and insurtechs and around 30 events under its umbrella: networking events, conferences, workshops, best case panels, a hackathon, a bar camp and much more.

What’s special about Fintech Week is that our week is not hosted by a single event organizer, but by more than two dozen event hosts, including banks, start-ups, law firms and consulting firms, all of which bring and communicate very different perspectives on the industry. Looking outside the box is virtually part of our DNA and our wide thematic spectrum is what makes Fintech Week unique in the German financial sector.

In 2019, for the first time, Fintech Week will evolve beyond its German focus and offer part of its programme in English – with our very own international conference FinForward as the focal point. Whether you’re an expat in one of Germany’s fintech capitals or coming from abroad to get to know the German market: You’re invited to become part of the Fintech Week community and visit one – or all – of our English events.
