The PSD Bank Meeting is an annual indoor track and field competition which takes place in February at the Arena-Sportpark in Düsseldorf, Germany. The inaugural edition 1. Internationales Indoor Meeting Düsseldorf was held in 2006 and attracted a sell-out crowd of 1500 people.[1] The competition was created following investment by the Düsseldorf municipal council, bringing a new usage to the venue which had served as a training facility for the 1977 IAAF World Cup.[2]

The second edition of the competition attracted a number of high calibre athletes from Europe, Africa, Asia and North America, with David Gillick's Irish national record in the 400 metres being a highlight.[3] The meeting is one of a handful of competitions which holds permit status from the European Athletics Association.[4] It established itself on the international circuit with frequent world-leading performances from athletes and typically sell-out editions in the 2000 capacity venue.[5][6][7]

In 2008, Cuban Dayron Robles ran 7.33 seconds for the 60 metres hurdles which was a Panamerican record for the event and the second fastest ever.[8] Among the performances in 2010 was an Asian indoor record for the 5000 m by Essa Ismail Rashed.[7] The sixth edition of the meeting in 2011 saw 18-year-old Isaiah Koech run the fourth fastest indoor 5000 metres in history, which was also the fastest ever by a junior athlete.[9] Katja Demut also set a German record in the triple jump at that year's event.[10]

Since 2008, the competition has been broadcast live on television by providers including Eurosport, RAI Sport and RTR among others.[11]
