Last Thursday and Friday I attended The Israel Conference which was the best event ever attended in my lifetime. I was blessed with opportunity to spend time with a number of Israeli Heavy Hitters. The event was practically free for what was given in return. Anybody who does not attend next year is a ---- fool! Count me in, I will definitely be in attendance next year. Where do I pre-register for 2013?
Todd Schweich, Director of Business Development, Networrk, Attendee

I want to tell you how much I enjoyed my first (but not last) Israel Conference. As a sabra who had lost her connection to Israel, it was amazing to be reminded of how smart and resourceful Israelis can be. And as a recent tech company founder, it was so inspiring to hear about all the innovation coming out of (and going to) Israel. Thanks again for organizing such an amazing event. ... I'm the woman whom Lior Suchard had up on stage reading "the story." I still have no idea how he did that. Magic?
Anat Baron, President, Ducks In A Row Entertainment Corporation, Attendee

Thank you for inviting Syneron to participate in this conference - it was so well run and so very effective. And thanks for your kind words. Kudos to you and your staff for pulling this off, I’m sure it bodes well for future conferences, which I expect will be as successful as this one was in putting people together to strengthen the Israel - California brain trust and make things happen scientifically and commercially.
For Syneron, as a leading Israeli medical device company in the growing market segment of aesthetic medicine, the Israel Conference provided us with some business opportunities that we are currently exploring. We would definitely welcome the opportunity to participate again next year.

I want to congratulate The Israel Conference on putting together a terrific and very successful event. I established many contacts and in fact I am already working with one other attendee to help him launch his company, protect his IP and secure financing (and yes, come on as a client of the law firm). I even made friends socially - just last Sunday my wife and I actually went to a BBQ at the park with a number of Israelis I met at the event! Congratulations again!

It was both an honor and a privilege to be a participant and sponsor of this outstanding conference. This event gives some of the most innovative and widely recognized entrepreneurs and industry leaders a place to meet, share ideas and discuss collaboration for the future; truly extraordinary things can happen when both Los Angeles and Israel-based businesses converge and work together. I look forward to next year. I applaud The Israel Conference and the entire team as well! The event was a huge success - well done!
Scott Painter, CEO, ZAG.com, Speaker and Sponsor

All the people that were involved in making this conference such a huge success should be very proud. The Israel Conference was very impressive in both the quantity of attendees and more importantly the quality of the people and the discussions that were held. This is a great achievement especially since this is the first time for this conference. The conference highlighted very clearly the high potential of both Israel & South California and the synergy among these 2 continents. Looking forward to the next "The Israel Conference"!
Yoram Novick, Former CEO, Topio, Speaker


- - - - - - - -


The conference was an outstanding event! Congratulations!! An excellent job in organizing such a high quality event with so many relevant people to the Israeli High-tech industry.

The Israel Conference brought together hundreds of business executives from California and Israel. The conference program and format created an engaging discussion between its participants, leading to meaningful business dialogues and new exciting opportunities. After attending the conference I feel that the distance between Los Angeles and Tel Aviv has somehow become shorter... I congratulate you for putting together a very impressive event.
Izhar Shay, Partner, Canaan Partners, Speaker
