The history of Expo Tel Aviv dates back to before the State of Israel was established – needless to say it has a huge amount of experience in hosting events including local and international conferences, exhibitions, music concerts, stage performances and sports tournaments. It attracts around 400 events a year, welcoming more than 2.5 million visitors to the city. The annual live extravaganza of multicultural entertainment that is the Eurovision Song Contest will be held at the venue in May – one of many events scheduled to take place in its spacious halls this year.

Unlimited possibilities 

Expo Tel Aviv is unique in its layout as a convention centre. It boasts almost as much outdoor space as it does indoor space, with 25,000sqm of flexible exhibition halls and conference facilities surrounded by 20,000sqm of green lawns. Its proximity to major road networks and public transport systems makes it a preferred destination for organisations across the globe. The centre works closely with local convention bureau Tel Aviv CVB in attracting and securing international events to the city and is an active member of the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA).

Each of its eight pavilions are kitted-out with the most advanced communication systems, including 802.11ac supercharged Wi-Fi and fibre broadband with a traffic capacity of 10g. All equipment is backed up with full redundancy and can connect via multi-line back-up capabilities. As a result the venue frequently attracts clients from within the cyber sector. In November it hosted the 5th International HLS & CYBER Conference, followed by international cyber industry event Cybertech in January this year.

At the other end of the spectrum, Expo Tel Aviv has proven to be a draw for arts, entertainment and sporting events, reflecting Tel Aviv's vibrant cultural offering. Each year it plays a part in contemporary art fair, Fresh Paint, the largest and most influential annual art event in Israel, attracting more than 30,000 visitors. In April 2018 it successfully hosted the European Judo Championship, marking the first time the event had been held in Israel. Almost 400 athletes from 44 different nations took part in the tournament.

Non-stop city

Often referred to as the 24-hour beach city, Tel Aviv is known for its round-the-clock entertainment, persistent sunshine and 14km of sandy Mediterranean beaches. As such, it provides plenty of incentive inspiration for even the most ambitious and creative of event organisers. And with Expo Tel Aviv located right in the centre, delegates have little distance to travel to sample the local attractions.

In recent years the city has made a name for itself as one of the world’s leading tech hubs: it now has the highest concentration per capita of tech start-ups in the world. It is also considered an up-and-coming destination for medicine and academia, and has a rapidly expanding culinary scene waiting to be explored.

When you combine the venue's exceptional business facilities with the innovative clusters and vast array of attractions the city has to offer, Expo Tel Aviv makes for an exciting proposition for a wide range of international congresses, conferences, events and meetings.
