“The international conference Muni World has become a draw for many delegations from around the globe who have come to hear about the Israeli companies that have made Israel the Start-Up Nation,” said Bibas. “Throughout the entire COVID-19 crisis, we were in touch with the local authorities worldwide, who will come to the conference and share their stories. We have prepared to hold a hybrid conference so that everyone will be able to take part in the conference, even from their place of residence.”
