We are pleased to invite your leadership to visit Israel, one of the world’s most innovative and dynamic economies, between May 26th and June 1st, 2019. This delegation will be focused on the high-tech and advanced manufacturing industries with an emphasis on R&D education, and building new relationships with potential clients and suppliers.

Israel’s innovation eco-system is a key part of their global R&D strategy, as is evident in the fact that the country hosts over sixty multinational corporations within a national population of less than ten million. Israel is rightly renowned globally as the ‘start-up nation’. Ranked 10th in the world in Bloomberg’s 2018 Innovation Index, Israel is second in the world for total amount spent on research and development at 4.3% of GDP and it has more companies listed on the NASDAQ than any other foreign country apart from China. Israel has more start-ups per capita than any other country and is second only to the United States overall. It is geographically at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, and with the Western legal and cultural norms, making it an ideal place to expand your business globally.

As part of this trade delegation, we will facilitate meetings with important industry umbrella organizations such as the Israel Advanced Technology Industries, the Canada-Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation, the Israeli Innovation Authority, and leading sector-specific accelerators. Delegates will have the opportunity to attend several world-leading technology conferences including the Robotics and Automation Conference, the New-Tech 2019 Exhibition, and the Israeli Startup Conference. Please visit the dedicated websites for more information about each conference. Please let us know if you might be interested in speaking or having a booth at any of these conferences and we will try to facilitate it.

A valuable component of the itinerary for this delegation is the coordination of B2B meetings for each delegate while in Israel. We have assembled a team dedicated to setting up these meetings for you. When you sign up to join this delegation, we will be asking you to tell us what kinds of companies, clients, suppliers, you would like to link up with so that we can build a list of potential connections specifically for you. With this in mind, if you are already aware of a business in Israel that would be a good fit for your business, please do let us know so that we can reach out on your behalf. Finally, delegates will be exposed to the rich culture and history of Israel through visits to the Old City of Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, the Masada fortress, Old Jaffa and other points of interest. Renowned for its culinary industry and cultural programming, you won’t miss out on everything Israel has to offer.

The expected cost per delegate with today’s exchange rate is $4,499.00 for Chamber members & $5,499.00 for non-members; this includes travel within the country, accommodations, meals, and access to attend all conferences. Delegates are responsible for booking their own flights to and from Israel; details of arrival date and time will be provided upon confirmation of participation.

Please register by February 21, 2019. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss this exciting opportunity further, please email israel@barriechamber.com or call Richard Brooks directly at 647-829-8092. Please feel free to pass this information on to any of your associates, clients, and suppliers that you think might also benefit from taking part in this trade delegation.

Financial Support: In preparing for this delegation, there is also the opportunity for your company to apply to the Export Market Access program for financial support associated with an international trade mission. The program is an application-based program available to Ontario Manufacturers who are attending and participating in a foreign market trade show. Each individual company will be assessed based on the merits of their application, and the likelihood of finding new international customers to increase export their activity. Our contact at the Ministry of Economic Development has indicated that he would be happy to advocate for any of our delegation participants and assist them with some guidance through the process. The website to apply is www.exportaccess.ca. Additionally, CanExport may be able to provide funding to suppport your participation.
