S.C. business leaders are being recruited for an economic development trip to Israel this May.
The American-Israel Chamber of Commerce, Southeast Region will lead a Southeast delegation to the Israel Innovation Conference, an international conference that focuses on biomed and high-tech industries.
The trip aims to build relationships, make connections and recruit Israeli companies to set-up operations in the Southeast.
A similar trip through the chamber, the annual S.C.-Israel Economic Development Mission, recently resulted in an Israeli company opening its U.S. subsidiary in Charleston. NeuroQuest has set-up its clinical development center at Roper St. Francis’ Clinical Biotechnology Research Institute.
Economic developers and business executives, as well as professionals from the life sciences and high-tech industries, are being recruited from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina for this delegation.
Israel Advanced Technology Industries will host the conference May 20-22 at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds. The Southeast delegation will have a booth at the conference. The chamber also will set up additional meetings and tours for each participant.
States and companies can become booth sponsors. Contact Guy Tessler for more information.
Established in 1992, the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce connects Americans and Israelis through business.
