The story of the DKM specialised trade fair began 24 years ago with just 130 attendants. Today, more than 17,000 people visit the fair every year, and we are proud to say that the DKM has progressed to become an established institution: the leading trade fair for finance and insurance industry.

From leading market players to specialised or niche providers ans start-ups, the entire industry is presented at the DKM, representing the fields of insurance, capital investment, banks, software, claim settlements, real estates, advance education and the media.

The fair has become the industry’s annual meeting-point for the independent brokers, agents and decision makers. The event is mainly focussed on

  • product presentations and introductions
  • congresses, lectures and workshops
  • B2B discussions

Two social evening events round the DKM off.

The organizer of the fair, bbg Betriebsberatungs GmbH, is known as an independent supplier of communication and information services for the finance and insurance industry.

Every year, the DKM welcomes over 17,000 professionals from the finance, insurance and real estate sectors to Messe Dortmund. At the two-day trade fair, global players as well as traditional companies, niche providers and start-ups will present their products and services. At the same time, the DKM is also THE networking and training event for the industry. Numerous lectures, discussions and other exciting formats make the DKM the industry highlight of the year.

The DKM is a registered trademark, which has developed from the word “cover concept fair”. In the meantime, the DKM is of course more than a trade fair for cover concepts. However, the “abbreviation” has remained as an independent brand.

The organizer is bbg Betriebsberatungs GmbH from Bayreuth. The location has been Messe Dortmund since 1999 ( exhibition premiere 1995 in Bayreuth). The DKM will take place for the 24th time in 2020.

The DKM is the “class reunion” of independent insurance brokers and financial service providers, fee advisors, asset managers, bank advisors and real estate agents.

Exhibitors at DKM include companies from the areas of insurance, claims settlement, investment, capital investment, real estate, as well as banks and Fin- / InsurTechs. Following the megatrend digitalization, there are also many companies from the software and IT sector on the exhibitor list. Providers of various services for the insurance and finance industry as well as media, law firms and associations round off the diverse trade fair marketplace.
