Billed as “the world’s premier financial services event” Sibos 2017 Toronto has made a bold claim. However, it’s a claim that the conference can back up. In 1978, Sibos was simply a seminar about banking operations. But much like the financial services industry itself, the conference has grown to become much, much more than that. Sibos is now an annual conference, exhibition, and networking event, with around 8,000 leaders from financial services in attendance.
The four-day conference takes place between the dates: Monday, October 16th, and Thursday, October 19th at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. There will be over 200 exhibitors, hundreds of speakers and conference sessions and plenty of opportunities to discuss business strategy and grow networks that will shape the future of finance.
Regardless of your specialty within financial services, Sibos Toronto 2017 will cater to your unique needs and interests. The programme is organized into four streams: banking, compliance, securities, and technology. Each stream has a different focus, but all follow the same theme.
The theme of this year’s conference is: “Building for the Future,” focusing on four emerging areas of concern for financial institutions:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- The impact of geopolitical and regulatory shifts
- Data and identity
