Conventions

Not just a land of milk and honey…. Israel is a country abundant with options for unforgettable conferences and conventions, able to accommodate from 50-10,000 participants. In contrast to a land steeped in history, Israel offers ultra-modern facilities with cutting-edge A/V equipment, lighting systems, translation booths, multilingual services and infrastructure for computerized presentations.

And since today’s world is dynamic, Israel’s convention centers provide everything you need to keep pace and get your news out. Press rooms are linked to every corner of the globe through world-class communications systems that support international video conferencing and direct access to all major television networks.

Israel boasts not only a breathtaking Mediterranean coast, but also hotels with unsurpassed convention facilities: in the major cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa, rural towns in the northern Galilee and on the shores of the Dead Sea and Red Sea in the south. All are exceptional, with captivating locations for gala openings or closings. What’s more, Israel’s universities are equipped with top-rate conference facilities, offering unique sites for conferences.

Visitors can bask in the sunshine and revel in history, while enjoying hotel accommodations suited to all tastes and budgets – from luxury hotel chains in the main cities to spa resorts in Eilat, the Galilee and Dead Sea and pastoral settings such as kibbutz guest houses and hotels. 

And don’t forget pre- and post-congress touring, including archaeological sites, classic Holy Land tours, spa treatments, sports and desert adventures. Accompanying persons will also keep busy with endless options for sightseeing and shopping during the convention. Israel’s PCOs will gladly coordinate all services and events.

Director General Circular No. 6/2015 -"Safety Net" Procedure for International Conferences in Israel
(Main points translated from the official Hebrew Procedure)

Declaration of Organization for Support in the "Safety Net" Directive

As a result of the current geo political/security situation in Israel, which may cause cancellations of international conferences which have been planned to take place in Israel during 2016, or a decrease in the number of participants in these events, the Ministry of Tourism has decided to enable submission of requests for the “Safety Net” Procedure also for international conferences taking place during 2016.
 
If such applications are submitted, they will be checked by the executive committee according to the Procedure, with regard to the special security situation prevailing today in Israel.
