INDIANAPOLIS -

As he concludes an economic development trip to Israel, Governor Eric Holcomb has announced an international cybersecurity conference is coming to Indianapolis. Cybertech Midwest, which is expected to attract some 700 global professionals October 23, is an extension of the original gathering in Tel Aviv that is billed as "the most significant conference and exhibition" of its kind outside of the United States.

Though previous versions have been held in the U.S, none have taken place before in the Midwest. Governor Eric Holcomb says "we're thrilled to host the first ever Cybertech Midwest conference in our capital city. Our trip to Israel demonstrated the collaborative potential Indiana has with Israel on cybersecurity issues, and no one hosts major events better than Indianapolis. We look forward to showcasing Hoosier Hospitality to cybertech leaders from around the world."

In its home city of Tel Aviv, Cybertech recently attracted 15,000 attendees and is considered the city's largest summit. Cybertech founder Amir Rapaport says "we are absolutely thrilled to bring the Cybertech to Indiana for our flagship U.S. event. We see Indiana as the ideal location for our Cybertech event due to its vibrant cyber eco-system, with incredible involvement and passion from the state, industry, academia and local government when it comes to cybersecurity, protection and innovation."

The summit will be held in Indianapolis the day before one of the city's largest annual gatherings, the National FFA Convention and Expo at Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center, which Visit Indy expects will bring some 67,000 downtown.
