Today we are pleased to announce the opening of registration for Innovate Israel. Innovate Israel Technology Conference is being organised by UK Israel Business, the Trade & Economic Office at the Embassy of Israel, Yossi Vardi and a number of other tech entrepreneurs and partners in London on 26 June 2012.
The conference comes on the back of the UK Government’s recent White Paper released in February 2011, ‘Trade and Investment for Growth’, which named Israel as a key strategic partner for the UK in the technology sector. As such, the Israeli Ambassador to the UK, and the British Ambassador to Israel are giving their full support, and are finalising arrangements for several senior government ministers to be in attendance.
This exciting initiative will be the first time an event of this scale and magnitude has been organised between the UK and Israel. To this end, Innovate Israel aims to partner the technological brilliance of Israel, with the UK’s expertise in building large, successful technology companies. Israeli companies interested in potential joint ventures, corporate and business development and access to capital, will have a first-hand opportunity to network with major British and European firms who are keen to uncover opportunities in the latest technological advancements coming out of Israel.
The conference itself has three core areas of focus, web, mobile and digital content. Participants will have the opportunity to engage across a variety of platforms including fireside discussions, roundtables and plenary sessions, and the opportunity for 1-2-1 meetings. We anticipate the conference will attract an audience of 250 senior decision makers from the UK. In addition, the visiting Israeli delegation, organised by the Israel Export Institute and headed by Yossi Vardi, will comprise of 50 exciting growth stage companies.
