Last week, a very, very busy Winter for the Israel Economic Mission concluded with two marquee events taking place in the Eastern United States one an annual tradition and the second a special event due to unfortunate unforeseen circumstances.
Taking place on March 4th and 5th, the premier two-day conference brought together over 1,000+ invitation-only senior executives from around the world to discuss innovation across key growth sectors including Digital Media, Cleantech, Mobile, Internet, Big Data, Semiconductors, Software, Healthcare and Telecom. Participants included chairpeople, CEOs, government leaders, investors, entrepreneurs and corporate professionals featured alongside a VIP delegation of global dealmakers. The summit balanced a featured roster of world-class speakers with significant networking time, providing unique insights and relationship building opportunities.
This year marked the conference’s 6th anniversary, and the second year in a row in which it was hosted in New York City. The turnout, included tech and investment gurus such as Jeff Pulver, Yossi Vardi and Chemi Peres among others. Additional highlights of the conference included a addresses by Israel’s Trade Minister Naftali Bennett and Lockheed Martin leadership, as well as “Jerusalem of Gold” sung on stage by Randi Zuckerberg.
