SIBOS 2015 to be held in Singapore

The world's biggest banking show will be back in Singapore after 12 years and promises to be a showstopper at the Marina Bay Sands.

“After Osaka this year, Dubai in 2013 and Boston in 2014, the world’s premier financial services event will return to Asia Pacific in 2015 in Singapore,” says Kris Hendrieckx, Head of Sibos, SWIFT. “We value the strong interest and commitment expressed by the Singaporean community and the local authorities in support of Sibos,” he adds.
“Singapore's lead within ASEAN creates a strong draw card for customers from South Asia as well as the Indian sub-continent and north Asia,” says Ian Johnston, Chief Executive Asia Pacific, SWIFT. “Sibos in Singapore is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the region to the entire SWIFT community.”

“The ABS welcomes the return of Sibos to Singapore after 12 years. Since then, with the global financial activities and economic centre of gravity shifting to Asia, Singapore has continued to strengthen its position as an international financial centre and is at the heart of the new financial arena.

The bankers, financial and technology experts who are expected to converge in Singapore for Sibos 2015 will have a firsthand experience of this new financial pulse and dynamism,” says Mrs Ai Boon Ong, Director, The Association of Banks in Singapore.

Sibos is a premium event that brings the global financial services and technology communities together, and contributes significantly to the economy of the host city and country.

“We are extremely pleased that Marina Bay Sands has been chosen as the venue for Sibos 2015,” says John Mims, Senior Vice President World-Wide Sales & Resort Marketing Asia, Las Vegas Sands Corp. “This event will be our largest to date, utilising over 120,000 square meters of space at Sands Expo and Convention Center, including 250 meeting rooms, six expo halls and the spectacular Grand Ballroom.

The organisers and delegates can expect unrivalled MICE facilities in addition to luxurious accommodation, world-class entertainment, spectacular shopping and dining options, right in the heart of downtown Singapore. As the leading business destination in Asia, we look forward to welcoming Sibos delegates in 2015 and providing them with seamless service and a truly memorable experience.”

Sibos in Osaka, from 29 October-1 November 2012, will focus on regulation, evolving technology and geographic shifts in the balance of economic power which continue to be high priority topics for the financial community. The key trends in these areas will be covered from many angles in a wide variety of sessions by industry experts.
The Sibos conference is an unparalleled source of financial industry debate and opinion. To join the industry’s thought-leaders in person, register via sibos.com.
