The Conference Promotion Programme will offer grants from £9,000 to £13,500 for conferences of 400 delegates or more. Further funding is available for accommodation of around £18 per person, per night spent in a Jerusalem hotel.
The fund has been set up to promote Jerusalem as a C&I destination. The city has 150 museums and galleries in the Old City, live music and theatre venues for evening events and surrounding vineyards and wineries.
In May, a dedicated C&I website (www.goisrael-conference-andincentive.com) was launched.
Jerusalem is 40 minutes from the Dead Sea and 45 minutes by car from Tel Aviv. Israel can accommodate conferences from 50 to 10,000 delegates.
