NY 2017
High-Tech, Finance and Innovation Conference

16-18 May 2017
 
about
Following the success of our San Francisco and London conferences, Calcalist is forging ahead with its international conference series, in which it places the spotlight on the world’s financial hubs currently at the center of global attention.
Our next destination is New York – the world’s most important metropolis, home to a trade and finance hub with paramount influence on the global media, politics, culture and fashion.
2017 emerged as a turning point for the American people, and is ushering the United States into a new era as President Donald Trump is taking up the reins. While the world will be looking to the West to see how the changeover effects economy and politics, locally and globally, a group of leading names in Israel’s economy, finance, hi-tech and governance will be visiting the US for a three-day event in mid-May. During this event they will have the opportunity to meet some of the most influential people and companies, opinion makers and trendsetters in NY and the world.
Mind the Tech NY 2017, in partnership with Bank Leumi, is scheduled for May 16-18. During the conference, we shall examine the ways in which high-tech and innovation are manifest in an array of fields, from marketing, finance and real estate, to fashion, music and art. Throughout the event, participants will take part in a series of unique encounters and engage in discussions on topics focusing on business ties with Israel, investment opportunities and more.
