The agency will provide a range of delegate management services for Sibos, its annual conference and exhibition for the financial industry.

Grass Roots will provide these services for Sibos’ annual events in Toronto 2017, Sydney 2018, London 2019 and Boston 2020.

Julie Yorke, Operations Director at Grass Roots, said: "We are delighted that after a rigorous tender process, Sibos has once again chosen to work with Grass Roots.  We will provide a full range of services for the conference and exhibition including pre-event registration, sourcing, housing management, onsite delivery and post-event analytical data insights.

"Sibos brings together over 8,000 of the leading figures from the financial industry and it requires us to deliver a range of complex solutions to facilitate the excellence associated with these events.  It’s a real testament to our development team that they have continued to advance our bespoke technological solutions and ensure that we remain in front of our competition."

Head of Sibos, Sven Bossu, commented: "Grass Roots has been our partner of choice for 15 years. We know that we can trust them to deliver operational excellence but it was important that they could also demonstrate real purpose, direction and vision around their technology for our future events and deliver this at a competitive price."

David Taylor, MD, Grass Roots Meetings & Events, added:  "Over the last 12 months, we have put much of our focus and investment into developing our delegate management solutions and it’s great to see this decision being endorsed by Sibos.  We very much look forward to working with them and continuing to deliver this premier business forum for the global business community."
