Finextra Research has once again partnered with financial messaging network Swift to launch SibosOnline, a special-purpose financial technology news site designed to keep visitors to Sibos 2004 in Atlanta up-to-speed with news and views direct from the exhibition and conference floor.
SibosOnline will be available as part of MySibos, a new online networking tool from Swift, which participants can use to customise their conference and exhibition schedule for the week, set up appointments in advance and exchange e-mails with all delegates and exhibitors.
This key networking tool will be available before, during and after the event. "We believe that this tool will really enhance participants’ experience of Sibos," says Patrik Neutjens, head of Swift corporate communications. "It will boost their networking options and help them make more effective use of the entire Sibos event. We have very high expectations for this new tool."
Onsite in Atlanta, there will be mySibos stations available for all participants throughout the exhibition and registration areas, outside the conference halls, in the speakers’ lounge, in the press office, as well as in the lobby of all official Sibos hotels.
SibosOnline headlines will be available as a scrolling ticker and integrated menu option over MySibos, providing delegates with instant online access to news as it happens at the week-long event.
With the power to draw over 6000 participants from the financial industry and some 200 application and middleware vendors, system integrators, financial institutions, consultants and central clearing systems, Sibos is the world's premier financial services event.
For financial technology professionals unable to participate directly in the show, SibosOnline is live on the World Wide Web at SibosOnline
, and also available through the usual Sibos channel on Finextra.com. Both channels will be continually updated and refreshed over the next three months.
All bank and vendor news relating to Sibos 2004 should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately (under embargo if necessary).
