CSR and Art at Sibos

We are pleased to announce the Anouk Foundation as our chosen charity for Sibos 2016. Founded in 2008, the foundation’s mission is to create soothing environments for children and adults staying in hospitals, special needs institutions and nursing homes.

We are sponsoring the artists from the Anouk Foundation to produce therapeutic murals at Auguste Buchet, which offers educational programmes for children and young adults with mental and physical disabilities. The artists will also be working onsite during Sibos week to produce transformative frescos that attendees can enjoy.

An ideal location

Switzerland’s second largest city shines as one of Europe’s most beautiful destinations – and will provide an idyllic setting for Sibos.

We are delighted to be returning to Geneva, following successful events in 1993 and 2002. Its favourable geographical location in the heart of Europe makes it a natural choice for our event.

The Palexpo is similarly well suited to our 8,000 plus delegates. With over 106,000 square metres of contiguous exhibition space, Palexpo is one of Europe’s largest, fully-integrated international convention and exhibition centres.
