Sydney to host Sibos 2018

Sibos, the world's largest financial conference will take place in Sydney in 2018.

The event will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Australia’s largest convention and exhibition facility that is expected to be completed in late 2016. 

This is the 14th event to be secured for the new ICC Sydney, and brings the combined estimated economic impact of these events to New South Wales to more than AUS$128mln. 

Lyn Lewis-Smith, chief executive of Business Events Sydney said ICC Sydney was cementing Sydney’s future as a leading global business event destination. 

"The NSW Government has made its commitment to the business event industry very clear and I’m proud to have been part of this amazing win for the city and for the new convention centre. The entire city pulled together for this bid – the local financial industry and our government and private sector partners all played a key part in the win," she said.

Sibos 2014 takes place in Boston from 29 September – 2 October.  Future Sibos venues include Singapore in 2015, Geneva in 2016 and Toronto in 2017.
