As SIBOS – the world’s biggest financial services event – is approaching, Sydney is getting ready to receive more than 40,000 conference delegates. With less than a year left to the big event, which will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney from 22-25 October 2018, the city is eager to demonstrate that NSW is Australia’s leading destination for hosting meetings, conventions and exhibitions.
ICC Sydney will be busy in the next twelve moths hosting 48 events secured by Business Events Sydney attracting 40,800 delegates staying 166,900 delegates days, hence boosting the economy as well as the city’s FinTech capability as local industry benchmarks against the latest developments around the world.
Chief Executive Officer of Business Events Sydney Lyn Lewis-Smith said: “SIBOS draws the C-suite of the world’s finance community to our shores to discuss investment opportunities, cybersecurity and technology such as blockchain. Together they will undertake ‘cyber war games’ to share the latest defences against major hacks.”
