Why shine the light?

George P Johnson won the pitch to deliver Sibos from 2013-2015 last year, which had previously been produced by Jack Morton for more than 15 years.

The event, which is celebrating 35 years and Swift's 40th anniversary, is expected to attract 7,000 decision makers and topic experts from financial institutions, market infrastructures, multinational corporations and technology partners during its outing on 16-19 September 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The agency was listed at number 3 in C&IT's 2013 top 50 agency rankings, with an event turnover of £46m in 2012.
