Sibos conference theme

Thriving in a hyper-connected world

This year’s conference theme – thriving in a hyper-connected world – recognises the challenges, and opportunities that mass digitisation and data-driven relationships present for the Sibos community.

Sibos 2019 will explore the impact of new technologies on infrastructures, value propositions and business models and identify the culture, skills and working practices that organisations need to maximise the potential of both human and machine capabilities.

Five sub-themes will examine how this critical human and machine collaboration can capitalise on data as the lifeblood of the modern financial services ecosystem:

  • Enhancing digital ecosystems
  • Leveraging data
  • Keeping ahead of cybersecurity threats
  • Adapting to geopolitical and regulatory priorities
  • Exploring the human element

More details on the conference theme will be revealed soon.

What's new?

This year’s Sibos will introduce a range of new networking initiatives, conference streams and interactive events to facilitate high quality learning, conversations and business development opportunities.

The focus will be on delivering targeted networking and thought leadership opportunities and, in particular, to meet the needs of current and future leaders of the Sibos community. This includes:

Talent Thursday
The fourth day of Sibos will include a bespoke programme for the future leaders of the financial services industry.
Sibos Spotlight
A themed stage on the main exhibition floor will tackle a topical issue each day, bringing together a range of voices from across the industry. Morning presentations will set the scene on big issues while afternoons will focus on solutions to these challenges. The Spotlights will be rounded off with tailored networking discussions on the day’s theme.
Views from the Top
A new conference series provides the opportunity for delegates to hear directly from thought-leading CEOs and senior business leaders through keynote speeches and fireside chats. The series will be positioned alongside insight from prominent non-financial industry figures.
An immersive experience
Sibos 2019 will blend conference and exhibition for an immersive experience which draws delegates through a diverse and engaging environment. Set across one floor and intersected by diagonal walkways, this year’s conference has been designed to capture the imagination while being easy and intuitive to navigate.
Fintech Focus
Nowhere is the banking industry embracing the digital revolution more than through its relationships with nimble and innovative fintechs, where collaborations are driving sophisticated solutions. This year’s event will include more fintech partners than ever before, recognising their value in the Sibos community and London’s role as one of the world’s foremost fintech hubs.
