This year, Travel Tech Israel expects over 400 people to participate in the conference, including tech entrepreneurs, investors, service providers, Israeli travel executives, and international administrators from leading companies in the travel industry. Global travel corporations such as Expedia, Skyscanner, Booking.com, KIWI, and Lastminute.com, are all sending representatives to partake in the symposium.
InnoVel founder and CEO Rom Hendler said in a statement that the conference “provides the perfect stage for the local startups to create long-lasting business relations with some of the global travel giants, and will position Israel not only as the Startup Nation but also as the Travel Tech Nation.”
The conference comes as Israel’s tourism industry has enjoyed a boost alongside international travel, as nearly two million tourists have visited the country since the beginning of the year, according to the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.
