As you already know, we have great … and glamorous … events in store for the TBEX International 2017 Opening Party on Monday, March 20th and the Closing Party on March 22nd. But because Jerusalem is profoundly diverse and also meant for exploring, we’ve chosen to make Tuesday night at TBEX a bit more interactive and mobile. Here’s why …
… something magical is happening in Jerusalem. This ancient and holiest of cities, with its seminal architecture, 4,000-year history and deeply cultural landscape, is being infused with dynamic layers of contemporaneity. Indeed, Jerusalem is experiencing its own rebirth with an inspiring wave of youthful energy and a ubiquitous contemporary A&E movement, not to mention a mouthwatering culinary and social scene that is as innovative and diverse as the city itself.
This is Jerusalem’s formula for success – a resplendent combination of old and new, modern and ancient, timely and timeless. And this is the Jerusalem that innumerable travel bloggers and hundreds of thousands of annual tourists experience any time they visit. So save the date and prepare to do what traveler bloggers do best – seek, wander and explore …

Tower of David Night Spectacular
The Tower of David Museum has generously sponsored a Tuesday viewing of their Night Spectacular for TBEX participants. This awe-inspiring event is the first of its kind in the world, and is set within the most iconic of surroundings!
The ancient walls of the King David Citadel serve as a magnificent theatre and backdrop for this celebration of sight and sound. Amidst the archaeological remains in the Citadel’s courtyard and the sounds of original music, the story of Jerusalem unfolds through giant breathtaking, virtual reality images. The Night Spectacular is appropriately designed for everyone – locals, visitors from around the world, families, speakers of all dialects, and especially those who love the magic and majesty that is Jerusalem.
The Tower of David Museum and Night Spectacular is easily accessible via Jerusalem’s numerous public transportation systems, which are very affordable and safe. Please plan to schedule your transportation to arrive at the Tower of David Museum in time for the 7:00pm start of the event. For participants continuing on the pub crawl after the Tower of David Night Spectacular, public transportation is easily accessible to Abraham Hostel from the Tower of David Museum.
Registration for the Tower of David Night Spectacular is required; please sign-up here.
The renowned Israel Museum has quickly become a must-see destination in Jerusalem. From ancient prehistoric artifacts to modern Israeli art, this museum houses a world-class range of rotating and permanent exhibits. At the heart of the museum is the Shrine of the Book, a dome-shaped monument that houses the Dead Sea Scrolls. The newly renovated Israel Museum ranks #4 out of 298 things to do on TripAdvisor. It is itself, a contemporary lesson in Israeli history. The Israel Museum has generously offered to sponsor guided tours on Tuesday evening for TBEX participants.
Transportation to the Israel Museum will be provided by coach. All registrants will meet at the David Citadel Hotel where the buses will depart at 6:30pm. Please plan to be at the David Citadel no later than 6:15. Coach buses will also transport participants of the Israel Museum tour back to the David Citadel hotel – or to Abraham Hostel (for those continuing on the pub crawl) after completion of the tour, so please make sure you select the bus that is continuing on to your desired destination after the tour has ended. Please note: it is the responsibility of each individual to plan for transportation to and from the hotel where you are staying to the David Citadel and/or Abraham Hostel (after the pub crawl ends).
Registration for the Israel Museum is required; please sign-up here.
