Topics and speakers for each year's Frankfurt European Banking Congress (EBC) are selected by a steering committee. The EBC's steering committee consists of members of Germany's hosting banks based in Frankfurt am Main — Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank — as well as representatives of the Frankfurt Economic Development and the International Bankers Forum (IBF). The steering committee meets regularly and is the sole organ responsible for the EBC's structure and content.

The following members form the EBC steering committee:

William De Vijlder
David Folkerts-Landau
Jörg Krämer
