Sibos has reported the host cities for both 2020 and 2021, which will be Boston and Singapore respectively. In 2020, Sibos returns to Boston and will welcome thousands of senior figures from the global financial services and technology communities to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (MCCA), one of North America’s largest venues.
It will provide the perfect platform for four days of high-level networking, discussion and debate as Sibos returns to a city renowned for its financial strength, asset management businesses, and science and technology scene.
Singapore will play host to Sibos for the third time in 2021, following successful runs in 2003 and 2015. This is the culmination of joint efforts by The Association of Banks in Singapore, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Singapore Tourism Board, and Marina Bay Sands – which will be the venue and knowledge-exchange platform for Sibos for the second time.
Singapore’s role at the heart of developments in the ASEAN region, and the strengthening of its position as a FinTech hub are clear draws for delegates. The city-state has long been seen as a leader in digital innovation, with a highly connected telecoms infrastructure driving industry trends, such as mobile payments.
Sven Bossu, Head of Sibos at SWIFT, says: “After Toronto this year, Sydney in 2018 and London in 2019, we’ll be kicking off a new decade by bringing delegates to more of the world’s financial powerhouses.”
“We truly value the desire and commitment shown by the local communities and authorities in both of these fantastic cities, which have become firm friends and allies of Sibos. We look forward to working with them to deliver cutting-edge programmes that help the industry to make sense of a changing world.”
Sibos 2017 takes place on 16 to 19 October at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto. Future Sibos venues include Sydney in 2018 and London in 2019.
