The "Future of Festivals" is an annual trade fair held in November in Berlin and is considered a central meeting point for stakeholders in the festival industry. Since its inception, it has evolved into an important platform for exchange, innovation, and education, bringing together organizers, service providers, associations, decision-makers, and trainees..

The fair is organized by Future of Festivals GmbH, an organization dedicated to promoting and developing the festival industry. It takes place at Arena Berlin, a versatile venue on the banks of the Spree, whose impressive architecture and flexible usability provide ideal conditions for dynamic events.

The fair covers a wide range of topics, from technological innovations and sustainable event management practices to marketing strategies and legal aspects. A special focus is on innovation and the integration of new technologies that revolutionize the planning and execution of festivals.

A highlight of the fair is the "Future of Festivals Awards", which recognize outstanding achievements in categories such as innovation, sustainability, and creativity. These awards emphasize the importance of excellence and progress in the industry and motivate participants to continue developing.

At the fair, products and services ranging from state-of-the-art stage technology to security solutions, advanced ticketing systems, and visitor tracking technologies are presented.
