Applications for fintechs to exhibit in the Discover Zone at Sibos 2019 London are now open. This year the Discover Zone will be the largest ever, with space for 100 leading fintechs operating in areas such as regtech, cyber security, AI, machine learning, big data and blockchain, along with those involved in cash management and supply chain management.

Sibos, the global financial services networking event organised by SWIFT, brings together stakeholders from across the industry to drive connections and collaborative innovation.

As an integral part of Sibos, the Discover Zone will enable fintechs to meet senior decision makers from around the world, driving innovative partnerships to develop customer solutions for a digital first, data driven world. To help make this truly inclusive, fintechs will be offered affordable packages to exhibit in the Discover Zone. Each year Sibos attracts more than 8,000 business leaders, decision makers and experts from the world’s largest banks, market infrastructure companies and technology vendors.

As well as exhibition booths, the Discover Zone will have its own networking event programme and a dedicated conference stage, where the innovation community can present to the broad Sibos audience. Content will focus on the forward looking topics that really matter to fintechs and banks, moderated by well-known voices from the fintech ecosystem.

Tanguy Rademakers, head of the Discover Zone at Sibos, said: “Sibos 2019 will bring together the most exciting fintechs, alongside bank innovation labs and pavilions, to network, share ideas and collaborate with the broader Sibos community. London is a leading fintech hub and it’s fitting that it will be home to our most ambitious Discover Zone yet.

“From cyber security to harnessing the power of big data, the Discover Zone enables the best and brightest innovators from around the globe to showcase their insights and solutions to the most senior decision makers from across the financial industry. This collaboration is essential to the future development of the financial industry.”

Sibos will be held at the ExCel Centre in Docklands, from 23-26 September 2019. Fintech exhibitors can apply for booths here. Applications close on Friday 26 April 2019 and successful applicants will be notified by Friday 31 May 2019.
