Sibos has announced that Singapore will be the host city come 2021.
The Lion City will play host to Sibos for the third time in 2021, following successful runs in 2003 and 2015. This is the culmination of joint efforts by The Association of Banks in Singapore, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Singapore Tourism Board, and Marina Bay Sands – which will be the venue and knowledge-exchange platform for Sibos for the second time.

In a press release, Sibos stated: “Singapore’s role at the heart of developments in the ASEAN region, and the strengthening of its position as a FinTech hub are clear draws for delegates. The city-state has long been seen as a leader in digital innovation, with a highly connected telecoms infrastructure driving industry trends, such as mobile payments.”
Sven Bossu, head of Sibos at SWIFT, said: “After Toronto this year, Sydney in 2018 and London in 2019, we’ll be kicking off a new decade by bringing delegates to more of the world’s financial powerhouses.”
Sibos also announced that Boston would be the host in 2020. Meanwhile, this year’s edition will take place from October 16-19 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto.
