More than 15,000 people are expected to converge on the Tel Aviv Convention Center for the sixth annual Cybertech Israel, the biggest annual cyber technologies event outside of the United States, on January 28-30, 2019.

The conference, chaired by Israeli startup pioneer Yossi Vardi, will feature a huge cyber business exhibition area and startup pavilion alongside formal sessions on hot topics such as AI, IoT, fin-tech, blockchain, privacy and GDPR, data protection, identity trust, and cybersecurity for the health, retail, smart mobility, communication, mobile, railways and aviation industries – as well as networking and B2B opportunities.

Among 170 speakers from across the world are top executives at Alibaba, IBM, Dell MEC, Deloitte, Check Point Software Technologies, New York City Economic Development Corporation, Federation of German Industries, Israel Innovation Authority and Israel National Cyber Bureau.

YL Ventures will sponsor a startup competition at the conference.

Altogether some 160 delegations from more than 80 countries are registered for the conference, and 210 companies, startups and organizations will showcase their products.

One of the delegations is coming from Britain’s Midlands Cyber, whose Cyber Valley high-tech and business cluster in central England is offering investment and partnership opportunities to Israeli executives and entrepreneurs.

The Midlands encompasses 800,000 companies, more than 17,500 of which focus on cyber and digital technology. Midlands’ new commercial accelerator, BetaDen, is actively seeking Israeli cyber participants to trial applications and services for 5G communications.

“The Israeli tech network is world renowned for leading innovation. We can help Israeli cyber and IoT entrepreneurs get to market quickly and give them warm introductions to key contacts and customers,” said Stuart Emmerson, manager of Invest in Worcestershire.
