The Finanser’s Week at #SIBOS in pictures

It's hard to capture the essence of SIBOS, but these pictures give you a brief insight review.

The conference venue is always huge.

SIBOS1

As are the crowds arriving on day one.

SIBOS2

Some of whom arrived in style.

SIBOS15

To hear great debates about the big issues in banking.

SIBOS16

Debates that make you question the future of banking.

SIBOS17

And maybe you should (who let this in?).

SIBOS18

You can then go to the Exhibit Hall and experience pitch after pitch in the Open Theatre sessions.

SIBOS3

Or on the exhibitor's stands.

SIBOS6

Some of whom bribe you with alcohol to come chat.

SIBOS9

Whilst others try cappuccino (which always works in the morning with HSBC's resident barista Franco).

SIBOS4

But even that does not work if you've been subject to heavy fines recently.

SIBOS8

Something that, for some banks, makes the trust factor a challenge.

SIBOS7

Nevertheless, you can always put your cash in a case and paint the town red.

SIBOS10

Then there were the book signings (every day on the innotribe stand).

SIBOS12

Some signings were more popular than others.

SIBOS11

But then, even after he leaves, you can't get rid of this Brett King guy.

  SIBOS13

SIBOS14

No matter, you can always retire to the nearest bar (I mistakenly thought this was one).

SIBOS5

And then, as the week ends, the crowds gather for the final keynote.

SIBOS20

As reflected in the opening plenary.

SIBOS21

And as the last words of wisdom echo around the conference hall.

SIBOS22

The staff gather to make our final night special.

SIBOS23

And so we wait for our jets home from Boston.

SIBOS24

 

And look forward to doing it all over again a year from now.

SIBOS25

Safe journeys home and trust y'all had as good a SIBOS as me.

TTFN.
