FAQ

The BVMW hosted the inaugural edition of Zukunftstag Mittelstand in 2023 with the aim of providing a platform for networking and exchange between decision-makers in business and politics. It is an arena for discussion of issues crucial to the future of companies in the Mittelstand, from digitalisation and the energy transition to New Work, mobility and connectivity.

Keynotes and talks by prestigious speakers from the highest echelons of power and authority will provide valuable input you can apply to secure your company’s future. Additionally, a host of forums and lounges will offer excellent opportunities to make new contacts and network in the exquisite surroundings of STATION-Berlin.

The next edition of Zukunftstag Mittelstand will take place on 13 March 2024. From 9am to 10pm (doors open at 8:30am), you can experience a day filled with fascinating discussions, inspiring information and high-quality networking.
