Dear colleagues, friends and partners,
I have the honor of inviting you to participate in MUNIEXPO 2020 – the annual international Municipal Innovation Conference held by the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel – which will take place at the Tel Aviv Convention Center on February 18-20th, 2020.
The largest Municipal event of the year, led by the Federation of Local Authorities in Israel, serves as fertile ground for innovation, entrepreneurship and business interactions and supplies members of local authorities with practical means of realizing innovative goals within their regions of jurisdiction. The strength of the convention lies in the collaborations formed among its participants and the subsequent impact on the daily lives of millions of inhabitants.
Over 200 mayors from Jewish and Arab towns in Israel will attend the event, alongside representatives from local authorities abroad. MUNIEXPO will take place for the 3rd consecutive year, following last year's success with over 170 technology-oriented companies and service providers, including significant private sector actors in the global arena, as well as at least 8,000 decision makers and buyers from Israel and over 80 international delegations. One of the highlights in the events will be the international MUNIEXPO exhibition dedicated to urban innovation and smart cities.
