NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Forbes today announced that Israeli President, Isaac Herzog, will be addressing the participants of its flagship Under 30 Summit EMEA which will take place in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem from May 29 – June 1, 2022.
President Herzog will be joining a long list of world-renowned entrepreneurs, investors, athletes, artists and others over the four-day event, including ex-NBA player Omri Casspi, Waze co-founder Uri Levine and unicorn founder Chen Amit (Tipalti).
Herzog was elected President of the State of Israel by the Knesset and took office on July 7, 2021. Prior to his role as President, Herzog served as the Head of the Jewish Agency, and before that, served as Leader of the Opposition in the Knesset since 2013, following his election as Chairman of the Labor Party in November 2013. Herzog was also the leading candidate opposing Prime Minister Netanyahu in the 2015 national elections.
In addition to unparalleled learning and networking opportunities, the four-day event will provide Under 30 attendees with the chance to soak up Israel’s rich culture and history through VIP experiences across Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. These include:
- A bell ringing ceremony to open the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange
- Exclusive tours of both historic cities
- Sampling of the world class local cuisine in Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem
- Immersing themselves in Tel Aviv’s famous nightlife and exploring Jerusalem’s famous Shuk marketplace
“What better way to introduce entrepreneurs from around the world to Israel than to provide a very special one-on-one conversation with President Herzog who will share his insights and optimism for Israel and the Middle East region,” said Randall Lane, Forbes Chief Content Officer. “Israel is one of the major hubs for entrepreneurship and innovation in the world today, and for our participants to be able to get a first-hand glimpse of this during their time in the country, combined with important dialogues like this is truly a unique experience.”
