The VBKI is the largest network of the Berlin economy

We bring Berlin's decision-makers together in our strong and wide-ranging network. We create space for the exchange of contacts, experiences and ideas. 

Achieving more together

The VBKI stands for diversity: behind our current 2300 members are 2300 individual life paths. These paths come together where experiences are shared, support is organized and common interests are explored - in the VBKI! For more than 140 years, we have known how closely personal success and a resilient network are linked.

Receive relevant first-hand information at our top-class panel and impulse formats, make new contacts at numerous networking events, celebrate with us at the annual Ball der Wirtschaft or at VBKI-Sommerfest. But above all: get to know new people across industry boundaries, deepen your contacts and exchange ideas. 

Ball der Wirtschaft - Highlight of the Berlin social calendar

For more than 70 years, Ball der Wirtschaft has been one of the top events in the capital region's social calendar. In addition to excellent cuisine and dancing until the early hours of the morning, the ball, which usually takes place at the end of February, also stands for outstanding networking potential. A must for anyone who wants to make a difference in Berlin!

VBKI-Sommerfest - Crowning finale of the capital city summer

The VBKI-Sommerfest is traditionally the first big get-together in Berlin after the summer break. Leading figures from business, politics and society come together - and use the informal atmosphere to cultivate existing contacts and make new ones. There's no better way to celebrate the capital's summer!
