The Society for World Interbank Financial Telecommunications, more commonly known as SWIFT, held their annual banking and financial conference, Sibos. The week-long event from 23-26 September 2019 was held at London’s ExCeL exhibition venue The delegate numbers were higher than ever, with 11,000 visitors from 150 countries having access to over 300 exhibitor stands and multiple conference, keynote and break out areas
As most will know, ExCeL provides a massive area, a 100 acre site according to Wikipedia! Sibos covered a large percentage of both North and South halls. Given the significance and complexity of this event, Pylon One engaged with all stakeholders a year in advance of this year’s event to commence the planning and design process. The demand and appetite for Wi-Fi access was significant and certainly more this year than in previous years. Stats show a a constant of 10,500 concurrent Wi-Fi users with a wapping 21.37Tb of data transferred over the duration of the event.
Planning for Sibos 2020 has already commenced which will be in Boston USA.
