Chairman of the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel Statement

Dear guests,

I am honored to invite you to MUNIEXPO- the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel’s annual conference, which was postponed due to the war in Gaza and will now take place on June 9-10, 2024 at EXPO Tel Aviv.

This distinguished 2-day event is the largest urban innovation conference in the Middle East and will bring together over 100 companies, start-ups, entrepreneurs, government entities, and local authorities. These leaders in innovation and renewal will meet face to face with over 10,000 visitors comprising senior government officials, municipal leaders, heads of business and industry, academics, media, innovators and influencers from around the world.

The MUNIEXPO municipal innovation conference features MUNIWORLD- a global platform for promoting local innovation, focusing on brainstorming key challenges and threats and advancing the latest products and services for Smart Cities.

As Israel faces some of the greatest challenges it has known, we recognize more than ever the importance of holding our flagship event, and in this spirit we dedicate the conference to “Israeli Revival”.

This year’s MUNIWORLD Conference will also serve as an opportunity for us to welcome heads of local authorities and mayors from around the world and thank those who have stood by Israel through these difficult times. We will also give special recognition to the Jewish communities and organizations outside of Israel that have demonstrated their unwavering solidarity and continued support for Israel in its renewed growth.

In addition to the exhibition, the conference will include expert-led presentations and discussion panels on a wide range of issues affecting local government such as cyber, personal safety, sustainability, urban planning, IT solutions, environmental, education and health services.

I invite all of you to join us at this most important and significant event.
