"Food for Thought" Online Events
Since 2014, Frankfurt Main Finance has been holding lecture events in loose succession under the title “Financial Centre Breakfast”. Top-class speakers comment on current topics of the financial centre from an international perspective. In addition to interesting insights, the audience is offered an extensive breakfast and the opportunity for a lively exchange of ideas in the community.
During the contact restrictions due to the coronavirus, the tradition of the financial centre breakfasts will be continued by the online event series “Food for thought” – virtual delicacies, nutritious, tasty and digestible. The transmission of image and sound offers vivid impressions and the opportunity for a lively dialogue.
The breakfasts and webinars are organized jointly with the Association of Foreign Banks in Germany.

Frankfurt Finance Summit
Since 2011, an annual event from the “Frankfurt Finance Summit” series has been held in Frankfurt am Main under the conceptual sponsorship of Frankfurt Main Finance e.V. The Summit addresses members and guests of the initiative: CEOs, CFOs, CROs, central bank representatives, supervisors and regulators from more than 20 countries, who are invited to discuss topics that currently move the finance industry.
2020, the Frankfurt Finance Summit took place as a hybrid event for the first time. In addition to the analog experience on site, a digital livestream offered the opportunity to follow the entire conference program in real time. The speakers were projected onto the stage via streaming and thus virtually integrated into the plenary session. Even participants who could not be on site had the opportunity to ask questions in the virtual plenum and to interact with the panelists and other participants.
