Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
The Israel Conference™ today announced that top executives from Waze, Coca Cola, PayPal, Intel Ventures, IBM, Wall Street Journal, and Deutsche Telekom Israel and fifty more companies will share their experience on how Israel and the US bridge the gap on innovation, technology, and business on October 30 + 31 at The Skirball in Los Angeles. Now in its 6th year, The Israel Conference is a powerful platform that brings business opportunities, ideas, and people together through great content and tremendous networking.
The Israel Conference™ is a powerful mega-networking platform that brings business opportunities, ideas, and people together to see the future state of technology, meet funders, and establish business alliances,” Conference co-Founder Sharona Justman said. “The Israel Conference™ is a nexus of innovation in action with forward-thinking corporate leaders sharing their success and opening new markets. Los Angeles is a remarkable location for a conference focusing on technology coming from Israel because this environment is one of the world’s most creative places with Silicon Beach bursting with energy mirroring Tel Aviv, Hollywood showcasing TV formats and content from Israel, and technology innovation all around with every industry within a hundred miles.”
The Israel Conference™ offers a two-day experience of technology, design, and business with companies that are actively doing business in Israel and VCs that are actively funding companies. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to meet with CEOs and innovators who are making new markets sizzle with leading edge solutions and products.
Technology from Israel has made a splash in the United States and one Waze will be one of the many companies featured at the conference. By connecting drivers to one another, Waze helps people create local driving communities that work together to improve the quality of everyone's daily driving. Waze solves traffic problems worldwide from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles.
Yossi Vardi, co-Chair of The Israel Conference™ who is considered the godfather of Israeli High Tech and well regarded for Instant Messaging will conduct a few fireside chats throughout the event.
Coca Cola is focused on innovation and has gone to Israel to find its future. Partnerships between Dick Clark Productions and Keshet, Israel’s leading Television Studio, is an example of how Hollywood is leaning on Israel to generate world class content with shows like Homeland and Tyrant. Caesars Entertainment is acquiring great Israeli companies and turning them into blockbuster hits.
A favorite session at The Israel Conference™ is FutureFest™ where VCs are judges in a session for upstart companies that are angling to change the market and the audience is listening to the mind of the VC.
A new session being introduced this year is APPsolutely! where remarkable APPs vie to win the APPsolutely! Award to be reviewed in PC Magazine.
The Israel Conference™ brings together over 700 top executives from businesses and Fortune 1000 firms to early-stage startups to attend this two-day event.
