Unsurprisingly, a large portion of the economy in Eilat is tourist-based: the accommodations services, the dining and the entertainment industries are very well-developed and attract a lot of entrepreneurs and investors, both local and from abroad. And the constant presence of tourists has also given a boost to the local shopping industries.
For those looking for a financial investment, Eilat offers a few excellent possibilities. As this city is always bustling with tourists, and as its weather is almost always pleasant, most days here become tourist season. Thus, investing in real estate and renting it out to the many visitors that come here, is a very good idea.
Eilat is also a popular location for conventions for a few reasons - it is distant enough to disconnect yourself from your daily environment and really immerse yourself in the convention ambience, it is an excellent location to take the evenings off and reload yourself with energy for another busy day of talks, mingling and lectures, and some of Eilat’s hotels are equipped with excellent convention centers of various sizes.
