About Sibos

All the people you want to meet in one place

Sibos is the world’s premier financial services event. Sibos is the annual conference, exhibition and networking event organised by SWIFT for the financial industry.

What started out as a banking operations seminar in 1978, has grown into the premier business forum for the global financial community to debate and collaborate in the areas of payments, securities, cash management and trade.
