The Herzliya Conference is Israel's foremost global policy annual gathering, drawing together the most senior Israeli and international participants from government, business, and academia to address pressing national, regional, and global issues.


The Herzliya Conference is the anchor of the Institute's year-long cycle of policy analysis work deliberating the key agenda issues and the Institute's policy products in various settings, including plenary sessions, roundtable discussions, and an international simulation. The Israeli and international media attention that the Conference draws allows to enhance the outreach and impact of the Institute's policy products.


The Herzliya Conference has welcomed many notable participants from abroad, including Ban Ki-moon, Nicolas Sarkozy, Jimmy Carter, Tony Blair, Jose Manuel Barroso, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, José María Aznar, Prince Hassan bin Tallal, Robert Zoellick, Nouriel Roubini, the late Samuel R.
