Strategic Materials Conference—
“Material Innovation: Catalyst for Success”

Top materials companies will be at SMC to hear about new business models, emerging players, green requirements, and the diverse partnerships in the semiconductor materials sector.

As the premier Global Material conference to the Electronics Industry, the conference will highlight the importance of Materials being the innovation and ingredient for success in not only our traditional Semiconductor market, but in new and emerging markets such as PV, LED’s and BioMedical. We are also extremely excited about the changes in this year’s conference structure. We have organized the event to bring even more value, networking opportunities and content to the key Electronics Materials supplier base.

Who Should Attend

SMC offers valuable content and unprecedented networking opportunities for industry professionals (i.e., presidents, vice-presidents and other senior professionals in marketing, sales, purchasing, finance, product managers, consultants and venture capital) who share common strategic objectives of continued materials innovation, management and business success.
