The Impact Festival
The IMPACT FESTIVAL is Europe’s first community-based platform and the largest B2B event for everyone who is passionate about sustainable solutions in the B2B sector. Not only do we talk about sustainability, but at the Impact Festival we bring together the most important start-ups and scale-ups with entrepreneurs and investors to drive the digital and sustainable restructuring of the business world.
With an extensive programme, the IMPACT FESTIVAL pursues the goal of significantly accelerating the sustainable transformation of our economy.
To this end, on 13 and 14 September 2023, for the third time in a row, investors and companies will meet innovative solutions from start-ups and, for the first time in 2023, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) offering innovative solutions. Visitors to the event will be able to find inspiration in the exhibition area and exchange information and ideas with other company representatives about transformative business models and their possible applications and examples. The IMPACT FESTIVAL thus offers start-ups and SMEs a platform to create synergies through networking, products and services. In addition, investors and start-ups network at the event and thus lay the financial foundation for the scaling and further success of their business goals. The most promising start-ups and SMEs will once again be honoured by the festival with the IMPACT AWARD. Highlights of the event will be presented to the organisers in guided exhibition tours aimed at investors, companies and media representatives.
A new addition this year is the Transformation Stage, which provides visitors with targeted best practices and content on sustainable transformation in companies. This stage complements the Impact Stage, where opinion leaders and experts share their knowledge in keynotes and panels. On the third stage, the Innovation Stage, the exhibiting start-ups pitch their solutions for sustainable change and answer questions from selected investors.
For the third edition, the IMPACT FESTIVAL expects around 200 exhibitors, 80 speakers and 3,000 visitors. An extensive supporting programme as well as informative formats such as the podcast IMPACT TALK and the IMPACT COMMUNITY, where interested parties can network and exchange ideas throughout the year, complement the event.
