Creating New Horizons

By Jonathan Davis, SEMI North America President

Many economic indicators are pointing up, but we all know that the rebound won’t be easy. Unlike previous downturns, moving beyond the current economic crisis will require a new set of approaches and solutions to position your company for growth and prosperity.

Many market leaders are re-inventing themselves as explosive growth occurs in new and emerging market segments. This year, the SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium/U.S. (January 10-13) will feature insightful presentations from thought leaders at:


  • Air Products
  • IC Insights
  • Intel


  • GlobalFoundries
  • KLA-Tencor
  • Lam Research
  • Qualcomm
  • Samsung Electronics
  • SCI Consulting
  • Teradyne


  • Applied Materials
  • DisplaySearch
  • E-Ink
  • IBS
  • Navigant Consulting
  • Polaris Venture
  • SID
  • Teradyne
  • Tokyo Electron


The SEMI Strategic Materials Conference (January 14-16) takes place immediately following ISS. SMC is the only annual forum for the global semiconductor and related industries materials suppliers and device communities.

Both ISS 2010 and SMC 2010 can provide insights to help you and your company succeed. The conferences are the same week in Half Moon Bay, California— close to Silicon Valley. Consider taking advantage of the discounted pricing available for attendees of both events.

I hope to see you there. For more information and to register, please visit and
