MIAMI, Fla. (PRWEB) September 08, 2015
The Miami office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig will join the Consulate General of Israel and Enterprise Florida in hosting a roundtable discussion of Israeli water technologies. The event takes place from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9, at Greenberg Traurig, 333 SE Second Avenue, 44th floor, Miami, FL 33131.
Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam will deliver the keynote address. International and local experts, including representatives from Israeli companies Woosh Water Solutions and IDE Technologies , will discuss solutions to address sustainability, water scarcity, purification, infrastructure and water-management issues facing South Florida. Each company will present its innovative, technological approach to water conservation and management, including many applications that have shown great success in Israel.
“This roundtable discussion provides an excellent opportunity for both the state of Florida and Israeli companies to work together on identifying sustainable solutions that benefit the region,” said Meital Stavinsky, a shareholder in the firm’s Government Law and Policy and Israel practices and the moderator for the event. “Israel is at the forefront of water and agriculture technology innovations. With Israel’s motto of more crop per drop, Florida businesses, government and residents can benefit by deploying Israeli solutions.”
Hon. Putnam, who is committed to growing the partnership between Florida and Israel in this area, will travel to Israel to participate in the Watec Water Technology and Environment Control Conference held Oct. 13-15 in Israel.
“Commissioner Putnam will speak at the WATEC Conference on water scarcity issues relevant to Florida,” said Revital Malca, the Deputy Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico. “He will meet with key companies and decision makers during his Israel visit. Ultimately these exchanges will lead to multiple job opportunities between Florida and Israel.”
At Greenberg Traurig, Stavinsky focuses her practice on government relations. She primarily advises Agtech, and Cleantech companies in the areas of renewable energy, transportation and infrastructure, energy efficiency, water and waste treatment, green materials and green buildings. As the coordinator of the firm’s Israel practice, Stavinsky assists Israeli companies seeking to enter the U.S. market and expand their operations in the States.
