Sibos Update

The 2017 conference programme is now live

Key topics this year include cybersecurity, the impact of geopolitical and regulatory shifts, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and data and identity

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Building for the Future’. Featuring in-depth panel sessions, debates and hundreds of speakers from a mix of backgrounds, the four-day programme will help delegates to better understand the latest trends shaping the financial industry.

The 2017 agenda is structured around four streams – Banking, Compliance, Securities and Technology, which will ensure all relevant topics are well covered.

The programme  will continue to evolve as new speakers and sessions are added in the build up to Sibos week in October. Confirmed speakers so far include RBC’s Dave McKay, who will open Sibos, and Admiral Michelle Howard, Commander of the US Naval Forces Europe & Africa.

A journey through the Sibos Zones

New for this year, the conference will take place across a number of different Zones at the MTCC:

• The John Bassett Theatre in the Inspire Zone will house the Plenary sessions and the Big Issue Debates. This year’s Big Issue Debates will bring together leading figures from across the industry to cover cybersecurity, geopolitics and regulation, innovations in AI, and the Future of Money. Stay tuned for more details.

• The Learn Zone will host the main conference sessions. It will also feature the Standards Forum sessions, where delegates can discover the benefits that standards can bring to their organisation, as well as the SWIFT Institute sessions and the SWIFTLab product demos.

• Located on the exhibition floor in the Connect Zone, the Innotribe sessions will take place in a ‘coffee shop’-style space alongside workshops and networking opportunities. 

Keep a close eye on the programme on Sibos.com throughout the summer.
