Sibos cities revealed for 2020 and 2021


Sibos is to return to Boston in 2020 and to Singapore in 2021, SWIFT has announced.

The annual financial services conference will be hosted in Singapore for the third time, following successful events in 2003 and 2015.

It will be the fourth time around for Boston, where the event was held in 1994, 2007 and 2014.

This year, Sibos will be held in Toronto, while Sydney and London will host in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Sven Bossu, head of Sibos at SWIFT, said: “We truly value the desire and commitment shown by the local communities and authorities in both of these fantastic cities, which have become firm friends and allies of Sibos.”

“We look forward to working with them to deliver cutting-edge programmes that help the industry to make sense of a changing world.”

Sibos 2017 takes place between 16 and 19 October at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
