A facility about 13 years old, is located at the southern entrance to the city. In addition to the thousands of square metres, it offers open spaces and modern halls, suited for conventions, exhibits and similar events, and a central logistical system offering high level professional technical support.
Aside from these major complexes, meetings and convention facilities exist in major tourism centres all over Israel, either as facilities standing in their own right, or as part of hotels, educational centres and convention complexes - and often with the cooperation of a number of facilities situated within a short distance from one another, for extremely large events - designed and equipped to meet just about every need. Excellent hotel facilities for conventions large and small can be found in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Eilat in particular. Other areas of the country, such as in the Dead Sea region and in the Galilee, also offer modern facilities for large gatherings.
Acknowledging the importance of the convention industry to Israel and to their own well-being, most of Israel's major hotels have been built with convention and congress facilities which meet the recommendations of IAPCO (the International Association of Professional Congress Organizers). Many veteran hotels in the country have made the enlarging and upgrading of meeting facilities a focal point of their renovations programmes in recent times.
