Virtual Conference in Israel

Tel Aviv – a place where ideas are born and start-ups built –  is also home to DLD (Digital, Life, Design). Due to the strict Corona restrictions and the renewed lockdown in Israel, DLD Tel Aviv will  host its first digital-only conference this week.

Digital tech impulses

DLD Tel Aviv stands for state-of-the-art technologies, innovative ideas,and the hottest start-ups. For the first time, the DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival (October 12-15) and the DLD Conference (October 14-15) will take place virtually this year. The mission however remains the same: The conference aims to connect companies, start-ups, investors, and entrepreneurs from all over the world to discuss the future of the ecosystem in the tech space. DLD Chairman Yossi Vardi and DLD founder Steffi Czerny will welcome the guests virtually. The presentation of the international "InnoVision Ecosystem Awards" is also part of the programme - a prize that honors outstanding innovations and global technologies. Besides sessions that focus on Israel as a hotspot for innovation and start-ups, one of the central topics to be discussed will be the "New Normal".

Corona in Israel

The new normal and how to live with Covid-19 is omnipresent in Israel, which is strongly affected by the coronavirus. Three weeks ago, another lockdown resulting in many restrictions was declared for the whole country leading to strong protests. Just a couple of  weeks ago, around 100,000 people took to the streets to demonstrate against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. With its nine million inhabitants, Israel is currently one of the countries with the highest number of Corona infections. Recently, the mark of 9,000 new infections per day was exceeded.

Digital future

Speakers such as Sir Martin Sorrell (agency group S4 Capital), Harry Moseley (video tool Zoom) and Ian Rogers (luxury goods group LVMH) will share their view on how the living with Corona changes our lives and what will remain after the pandemic. What will the workplace of the future look like? What business models will dominate the internet? What future role will artificial intelligence and robots play? And how important will our own home be?
