Sibos Heads for Sydney

The world’s largest financial services event ‘Sibos’ is heading for Sydney for the third time between 22-25 October. Secured for Australia by Business Events Sydney (BESydney), Sibos is expected to gather up to 7000 senior leaders of the international financial community at the new International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) to debate global trends and challenges, and collaborate on solutions that will shape the industry.

This year’s event, themed ‘Enabling the digital economy’, the focus will be on how data, artificial intelligence, robotics and other emerging technologies are driving innovation, reshaping businesses and helping to tackle financial crime. The event will also look at the ongoing threat of cybersecurity and the evolving global regulatory landscape.
