Israel Research Tour 4th – 8th November 2018

4th – 8th November 2018


Our annual research programme comprises two major events each year, our Silicon Valley Research Tour in May and our European Tour in the Autumn. However, this year I am delighted to announce the initial programme for our first Israel Research Tour which will deliver a different, fresh perspective to our clients.

We have run our annual US Research Tour for 22 years, and our European Research Tour for 5, and during that time have introduced tour delegates to hundreds of technology companies, many of whom have gone on to become major disruptors, transforming businesses around the world.
