Columbia Chamber Sponsors S.C.-Israel Benefit

Curious about doing business in Israel or maybe you’re ready to find an Israeli partner.

Join the South Carolina-Israel Collaboration and MITA, the Midlands International Trade Association for “The South Carolina-Israel Experience: How the Midlands Can Benefit” from noon-2 p.m. on Thursday, June 7, at the Columbia Marriott Hotel. Cost is $25 per person.

Featured speakers will include Jonathan Zucker, president of the Inter/Tech Group in Charleston and chairman of the collaboration; Tom Vogt, associate vice president for research at USC; Diane Weiner, director of business development for the Israeli company Healarium; and Tom Glaser, president of the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce.

Sponsors for this event include the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce, USC/Innovista, the Central South Carolina Economic Development Alliance and Parker Poe Law Firm.

The South Carolina-Israel Collaboration, formed in 2011, has already succeeded in raising our state’s profile in Israel and generating business and research relationships that are beneficial to both sides. A 26-person South Carolina delegation to Israel last November included a significant group from the Midlands, and another such economic development trip is being planned for 2012.

Please RSVP by Friday, June 4 to or by phone, (803)-777-1177.
