The buzz around the country’s largest international high-tech gathering – Digital Life Design (DLD) Tel Aviv Innovation Festival — is getting louder as the September 6 -12, 2015 event nears.

Hundreds of startups, angel investors and leading multinationals will take part in the event.

Over 50 delegations – including Austria, Thailand, Spain, South Africa, the US, and South Korea – are sending representatives to the event.

It’s a Who’s Who insofar as speakers go – with the likes of Maxine Fassberg, CEO Intel Israel; Lily Chan, CEO NUS Enterpirse; Jimmy Maymann, President of Consumer Brands at AOL; and Rubi Suliman, High-Tech leader at PwC Israel, among others on the list.

The Start Tel Aviv Competition will bring together representatives of the best startups from 21 countries around the world.

And the Startup Boulevard will boast 72 new companies with ideas that are bettering health (ARCHIMEDICX), cyber (EnSilo), environment (BreezoMeter), parking (Spaceek), fashion (CupCare), among other diverse fields.

The event will also host meetups on gaming, social tech, wearables, culinary tech, Bitcoin, robotics, brain technologies, cyber, mobile, animation, and more.

For those wondering what a startup does and hoping to catch a view of how startups work, the municipality is hosting a free event that does just that. It’s called Open Startup and the public is invited to meet dozens of startup companies in the city and visit their offices.

The DLD Festival is taking place at Tel Aviv’s Old Train Station (Hatachana) entertainment complex.
