The Israel Conference™ increases opportunities for business partnerships between Israel and the Global economy by showcasing the businesses of Israel.
We feature successful businesses and business partnerships that have products and technology that come out of the Israel market and are sold worldwide with speakers who are internationally recognized industry executives, inspiring global leaders, and prominent investors.

This fully business-oriented conference attracts attendees from California, New York, Georgia, Texas, Massachusetts, Illinois, Atlanta and many other US cities as well as Canada, Australia, France, China, Mexico, England and, of course, Israel. Attendees enjoy an excellent forum for business networking and idea exchange with the objective of exploring and creating new business while learning about the current investment market and future business growth of Israel-facing companies that were founded in Israel / have R&D in Israel / do business in Israel / and investors in Israeli companies.

We market to tens of thousands of executives and business people whom we reach via direct email, social media, and newspapers.
We have created a day at The Israel Conference™ for executives to come together, talk, eat, think, idea-generate, and gain an insider’s understanding of the success of Israel-facing companies. Conference co-Chairs are Yossi Vardi and Sharona Justman.
We are more than a business conference, we are an experience!
