The Tourism Ministry held its annual conference in Herzliya on Monday to conclude the four years term and discuss the future of tourism in Israel as well as the challenges it faces.

The conference, which hosted officials of the ministry as well as owners of Israel’s largest hotel chains, travel website founders and other tourism professionals, was conducted in three consecutive panels.Amongst the subjects raised during the event, the effect of Israel’s latest military operation, on the country’s tourism constituted one of the main topics of discussion.

Operation Pillar of Defense, which took place the end of November 2012, caused significant damage to the Israeli tourism industry in general and in the south in particular.
