Sibos is going digital this year. It was a tough decision to move our event online, but we knew from conversations with customers and partners it was the right one to take. The change in format gives us the opportunity to bring Sibos to a broader audience, showcasing an exciting digital programme, not just for Sibos week but stretching into 2021 with a new monthly series.
Sibos week takes place on our original dates – 5–8 October 2020 – as a free, thought leadership focused event.
The programme will feature agenda setting insights from the industry’s foremost experts, who will debate the theme ‘Driving the evolution of smart finance’. Each day will tackle one of our interconnected sub-themes:
- Delivering digital value
- Responsible innovation
- Banking for humanity
- The future of finance
A host of our flagship conference sessions will return, including Big Issue Debates, Views from the Top, Sibos Spotlight and Innotribe. We’ll also be bringing back a number of our successful community initiatives, including the STAR Scholarship, collaborative innovation events such as the Sibos Hackathon and select digital networking events, so we can stay connected while physically apart.
Sibos will continue the conversation with a high-quality programme of monthly digital sessions and content, exclusive to registered Sibos delegates, running through to Sibos 2021 Singapore. We decided to make registration free of charge so the programme is accessible to more of the financial services community during this exceptional year. We hope the digital nature of this year’s event means as many people as possible will participate, including those who haven’t previously visited Sibos in person. Registration will open from August, when we’ll unveil the full Sibos week programme with details of speakers and sessions.
This year is an extraordinary challenge for everyone, but we hope to meet your expectations with creativity, flexibility and dedication. While the Sibos experience will be very different this year, we are driven to retain the Sibos ‘magic’ and provide a hub for our community to exchange ideas and collaborate.
Hope to see you all online for Sibos 2020 in October and beyond!
