Eilat has long been a center for various conventions that take place in Israel. Eilat is 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.
Herods Hotel, for example, holds seven halls for conventions; Dan Eilat has a complex of halls that are designed to hold both large lectures and smaller seminars; and the Royal Beach Eilat convention center boasts over 1,000 square meters of convention-designated space. Additionally, the municipality of Eilat is also working on constructing an independent convention and fairs center in Eilat. The municipality supports and encourages conventions and large events via the Tourism Corporation of Eilat
