Sibos Insider

A snapshot of what’s to come

Excitement is building around this year’s Sibos and preparations are in full-swing. With just four months to go Insider brings you the latest on an exclusive Sibos preview event, conference streams tackling the robo-human conundrum and the seaweed water bottles that are all part of our drive to crack-down on single-use plastics.

Sibos Summer Snapshot

Who wants a sneak peek at this year’s Sibos? We are hosting a networking event at East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf, London, to provide an exclusive preview.

This free, after work event will feature a high profile keynote, networking drinks and a first look at what’s in store for Sibos 2019. The evening will be headed by special guest speaker Pascal Coppens, a prolific entrepreneur and leading sinologist with expertise ranging from artificial intelligence to offline digital community platforms, focusing on helping technology companies scale their business and reach key target markets.

Join us for a summer evening to remember from 17:00 to 19:30 on Thursday 6 June. Spaces are limited! Read more about the event and register your interest to attend.

Conference programme: Exploring the human element

One of our conference sub-themes at Sibos London is ‘exploring the human element’. At a time of unprecedented technological transformation, businesses need to understand how workplaces must evolve to the changes digitisation will bring. It is critical that organisations adapt in order to attract, retain and energise a diverse and skilled workforce. In this brave new world they must also understand the ethical implications of technology on trust and identity. Examples of some of the thought provoking sessions planned on this theme at Sibos are:

  • Embracing artificial intelligence: how is AI augmenting compliance practices?
  • What's left for the Human after AI & Robotics?
  • Protecting Privacy and Instilling Trust in a Millennial World

Read more on exploring the human element in our article, Harnessing human and artificial intelligence to meet evolving compliance challenges, the second in our series which examines each of our sub-themes in detail.

The full conference programme will be available in June. You can find more information on the sessions we are putting together on our website.

Deutsche Bank on Sibos

Deutsche Bank has been an ever-present exhibitor at Sibos over the years so we interviewed Jacob Howard, VP, Marketing from Deutsche Bank’s Global Transaction Banking business recently at the Sibos Exhibitor Day to find out why the event was such an important fixture in its exhibitions and conference calendar, and what Jacob thought would be the hot topics in London this year.

Get involved with CSR

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and green initiatives will be ramped up this year at Sibos in London, with the focus on protecting our environment, caring for the community and promoting equality and diversity.

There are a host of initiatives, charity partnerships and sessions planned and underway, from planting trees to supporting child carers and recycling stand materials. So, there’s plenty of scope for you get involved, fight clean and green, and even sample some Ooho ‘edible water’ capsules that will be distributed daily at the conference. Find out more on our updated CSR page.

Amsterdam to host Sibos 2022

Sibos has officially selected Amsterdam as the host city for 2022. The last time Sibos was in Amsterdam was 2010, when it attracted more than 8900 delegates – the biggest attendance to date! Sibos 2022 will be held at the RAI Amsterdam, one of Europe’s busiest convention centres.

The dates have also been confirmed for Sibos in Boston, which will take place from 5 to 8 October 2020, following this year’s event in London. And looking forward to 2021, Singapore will host Sibos for the third time following successful events in 2003 and 2015. All three cities are dominant financial centres and perfect locations for bringing the Sibos community together for unparalleled debate and networking opportunities.
