Off to Tel Aviv!

More than 17,000 participants and 120 delegations with more than 4,500 participants from all over the world: The DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival (September 3 to 6) is becoming increasingly popular and is "the place to be" especially for German participants! Around 600 people are coming from all over Germany this year - more than ever before, including important CEOs, investors and politicians, but also students and start-ups. They all want to be infected by Israel's founding spirit and take new technologies and fresh ideas back home with them. Because the world is changing and those who do not have a say in it will be left behind.

Back to the roots

Long before Israel became the hotspot of the global tech elite, DLD founder Steffi Czerny, publisher Hubert Burda and Israeli investor Yossi Vardi gathered digital thinkers and visionaries in 2000 for the event "Cool People in The Hot Dessert" in the desert city of Beer Sheva. The conference is considered to be the forerunner of today's international conference platform DLD, which takes place in Munich, New York, Brussels, Singapore and on 5 and 6 September in Tel Aviv for the eighth time.

Politicians, princes and parties

DLD Tel Aviv is difficult to compare with other events. Three conference formats come together here: the SmartCities of Tel Aviv, EdTech (Educational Technology) Week and the DLD conference. New technologies, trends and visions can be experienced not only on stage, but also at the stands of start-ups and tech companies throughout the city. The unique flair and the festival character make up the countless parties - seven of them directly on the beach, including the big farewell party of Burda on the last day of the conference. No wonder that top-class guests like Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland or Prince Constantijn from the Netherlands do not want to miss the event.


"The special thing about DLD Tel Aviv is that the conference returns to its original location and meets Israel's incomparable start-up magic. This combination is so exciting and unique that everyone wants to participate. I am very pleased that we can win more and more German participants for our event in Tel Aviv!"
