A growing financial hub

Australia generates its income from mining-related exports, manufacturing, telecommunications, and, notably, banking.

Ranked fifth in the 2017 Index of Economic Freedom, Australia is known for its sophisticated financial services sector and strong economy.

It’s a pivotal time for the country’s financial services sector, which is being shaped by new realities. Australia’s payments and securities market infrastructures are being revamped to meet the needs of a 24/7 digital economy. Banks are building exciting new products and services for their customers. And local accelerators, such as FinTech Australia, are supporting Australia’s drive to become one of the world’s top markets for FinTech innovation and investment.

A multicultural stage for collaboration

Whilst English is Australia’s official language, Sydney is one of the world’s most multicultural cities. According to Business Events Sydney more than 1.2 million of the city’s residents speak a different language at home. So, you're sure to find someone who speaks your 'lingo' (that's Australian for language)!

The country also ranked second in the 2016 United Nations Human Development Index. All of Australia’s major cities boast a high quality of life. In The Economist’s 2014 list of the world’s most liveable cities, Melbourne was top, with Adelaide fifth and Sydney seventh.

The world’s premier financial services event at Australia’s premier venue

The ICC Sydney is Australia’s premier convention and exhibition venue. It will provide a perfect platform for Sibos.

Located in Darling Harbour in the heart of Sydney, it recently reopened following a refresh. It features striking contemporary design, plenary options holding up to 8,000 people, and an open-air event deck.

Sibos will take advantage of this stunning setting to facilitate collaborative innovation, provide an inspiring conference, stage a world-class exhibition, and – of course – support networking in spaces flooded with the beautiful Australian sunshine.
