IBCC News - September 2018


 Dear Members and Friends,

What an amazing quarter! Just before we are welcoming the New Year we would like to share some of the significant activities and events we were having over these last several months. We have had many "firsts"…among those some Royal star- dust: we were  celebrating at the beautiful garden of the UK Ambassador David Quarry and his Partner Aldo Henriquez, the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Magen Merkel, followed by a first formal visit of Prince William in Israel! In between we hosted the first Trade CFI delegation and over dinner with CEO's of leading British companies operating in Israel,discussions  included  plans and exchange of ideas on how to further leverage the great relations that are already established. We took the first Israeli delegation to the Liverpool international festival! and opened up a new network of mayors, municipalities and tech entrepreneurs in the area of smart cities. We partnered for the third year with Cyber security center of TAU and Prime Minister office and held our Cyber-insurance seminar. after the enjoyable summer and the holidays season we look forward to seeing you at our many activities starting with the 8th Annual Real Estate event which will take place in October.

On behalf of the IBCC Board and Team we wish you all a wonderful Healthy Fruitful year and Shanna Tovah!
