Advantages of membership
Bitkom is a large, powerful network and brings together the best minds and companies in the digital world.
We organise a constant exchange between experts and managers, and bring providers and users of digital solutions together. We offer our members a platform for internal cooperation as well as contact with important customers and partners. Membership of Bitkom will bring your company the following benefits:
We represent the interests of more than 1,500 member companies – including global players, powerful SMEs and highly innovative start-ups. Our experts network throughout the entire country at around 500 events per year involving about 150 expert boards. As a member, through your participation in the activities of the boards and the resulting exchange between experts, you will be better informed, can develop new business models for yourself and build up your presence in the market more quickly – giving you a clear competitive advantage.
Representation of political interests
Our collective voices carry significant weight in Berlin, Brussels and in the capital cities of the German states. We foster a trusting dialogue with government and administration and are integrated into the legislative process. In the course of this, we are committed to creating innovation-friendly and regulatory framework conditions. Come help shape this political dialogue!
With our publications, such as studies and guidelines, and their subsequent marketing, we help to draw attention to certain topics. As a member, you can broaden the range of your messages and thus enhance the visibility of your company far beyond the region. Among other things, you can also benefit from the positive image of Bitkom by being a partner for our top events. Here you can address your target groups directly, for instance as a speaker at our conferences or at a meeting with your customers at one of our executive events.
The executives of member companies have exclusive access to particularly high-ranking events such as the Political Evenings, the Political Summer Festival, trade fair receptions or the IT summit meeting. Here Bitkom brings together the highest ranking representatives of politics, the media and business.
Participation in trade fairs and events
In addition to working on our boards, you can be involved in our exclusive events or trade fair participations as a speaker or partner. This option is a result of the service offered by Bitkom Live, where you will receive discounts and other benefits as a member.
