Sibos conference theme

Thriving in a hyper-connected world

The 2019 conference theme – thriving in a hyper-connected world – looked at the challenges and opportunities that mass digitisation and data-driven relationships present for the Sibos community.

It explored the impact of new technologies on infrastructures, value propositions and business models and identified the culture, skills and working practices that organisations need to maximise the potential of both human and machine capabilities.

Explore the theme and relive the highlights of Sibos 2019 London by watching the publically available videos – including the Opening and Closing plenaries, Big Issue Debates and Views from the Top sessions, on the video page. All other video sessions are available for registered delegates to watch when logged in on Sibos.com or the Sibos App until the end of 2019.
