What is Sibos?

Sibos is the world’s premier financial services event

Sibos is an annual conference, exhibition and networking event organised by SWIFT for the financial industry. What started out as SWIFT’s international banking operations seminar, has grown into a premier business forum for the global financial community to debate and collaborate in the areas of payments, securities, cash management and trade.

Why attend?

In just one week, Sibos brings together some 7,000 decision makers and topic experts from financial institutions, market infrastructures, multinational corporations and technology partners. With half a dozen conference tracks, a hundred speakers and as many conference sessions, nearly 200 exhibitors, and plenty of networking events, Sibos is the place to do business and collectively shape the future of the financial industry.

Who are we?

Sibos is organised and facilitated by SWIFT, the global provider of secure financial messaging services. As the financial industry’s cooperative, SWIFT’s role is two-fold:

  • SWIFT enables more than 10,000 financial institutions and corporations in 212 countries and territories to connect and exchange financial information securely and reliably.
  • SWIFT also brings the financial community together to work collaboratively to shape market practice, define standards and debate issues of mutual interest. Sibos is SWIFT’s flagship event. 

SWIFT’s Sibos team, currently headed by Sven Bossu, works year-round to deliver Sibos.
