General Information about Jerusalem for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals

Located between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, Jerusalem is a Middle Eastern city with over 900,000 inhabitants. It is one of the oldest cities in the world and is considered a holy settlement by the Judaist, Christian and Islamic religions. Currently, Jerusalem’s political situation is rather tense and unclear: although it is governed and administered by Israel, Palestine also claims it as its capital. Regardless of these problems, the city is gradually becoming a powerful commercial, economic, industrial and financial centre, with a particularly high prominence of the high-tech industry. Some large technological corporations with regional headquarters in Jerusalem include IBM, Cisco, Intel, Medtronic and Mobileye, all of them located in the expansive Jerusalem Technology Park and Northern Jerusalem’s Har Hotzvim Industrial Park. Moreover, it is also an important tourist destination, due to attractions such as its wonderful Old City, voted by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in 1991, or the Western Wall, a well-known site for religious pilgrimage. The city is a major cultural hub, home to exceptional museums such as the Israel Museum, probably the most renowned museum in the Middle East, showcasing an enormous collection of Israeli, Judaic and European artworks, together with rare archeological discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls.
