Advanced, smart and green manufacturing will take center stage on-site and online September 23-25 as SEMICON Taiwan 2020 gathers industry visionaries and experts for the latest market trends, business opportunities and innovations across the semiconductor supply chain. Bringing together 550 exhibitors across 2,000 booths at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1 (TaiNEX 1), the hybrid event will also feature a virtual platform featuring an expo hall, live streaming forums and virtual reality (VR) technology for an immersive online experience accessible around the world. SEMICON Taiwan 2020 registration is now open.
The event coincides with the emergence of work from home, cloud services and telemedicine merged as drivers of semiconductor industry growth. Enabling technologies artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G are also key forces at play. The three technology areas – critical bulwarks in the world’s continuing battle against the COVID-19 pandemic – will contribute to a record US$67.7 billion in global fab equipment spending, an increase of 24%, next year, according to SEMI.
