Membership fee for a BVL membership (valid from 1 January 2024)
You can choose between a company membership, a personal membership and a trial membership. With company membership, you appoint so-called contact persons depending on the size of your company. These are the contact persons in your company who benefit from the entire membership service. With personal membership, we take into account your respective work and life situation. The trial membership "Test the Best" provides an insight into the membership with a full range of benefits before it automatically changes into a regular personal membership at the beginning of the following year.

According to our Articles of Association, the membership fee represents an annual contribution for the current calendar year. Regardless of whether the application takes place in January or, for example, in July, the annual contribution is to be paid in full. A proportionate monthly payment is not possible. This was decided by the General Assembly as an executive organ of BVL and is documented in our Articles of Association.
Please note that personal memberships can only be charged to the member's home address; corporate memberships will be invoiced to the companies.
With your registration, you benefit immediately from the numerous advantages of the BVL membership. For example, the participation fee for our events, such as the BVL Supply Chain CX (former International Supply Chain Conference) in Berlin, can be reduced by up to EUR 200, which has already paid off a personal membership fee.
As a non-profit association, these are minimum contributions. You are also welcome to set a higher contribution for yourself, which we will invest in the work of the association in accordance with its statutes. The annual contribution for personal members is tax deductible.
