Tel Aviv is one of the central IT hubs in MENA. It is home to hundreds of high—class technology companies, some of which are undisputed market leaders. So we have long wanted to hold an event here, to gather the strongest local community under one roof,” Yulia Lebedeva, partner and Executive director of WN Media Group, comments on the event.

We held a conference in another new country for us. WN Tel Aviv’22 has become one of the largest and most successful events over the past year. Next year we plan to return to Israel,” Lebedeva also noted.
