SEMICON EUROPA 2007 SCHEDULED FOR 12-14 JUNE 2007
MUNICH, Germany – April 7, 2006 – SEMI today announced that SEMICON Europa 2007, the premier regional event to showcase technology to manufacture semiconductors, micro-electromechanical systems, nanoelectronics and photovoltaic devices, will be held 12-14 June 2007 in Munich (Germany).
The 30th anniversary event was held 4-6 April and concluded successfully with 794 exhibiting companies and attendance figures that exceeded the prior years’ event by 5 percent. Also, the numbers of visitors for programs and conferences have increased by 42 percent this year.
“We are very pleased with the results of this year's exposition” said Heinz Kundert, President of SEMI Europe. “SEMICON Europa is turning into an efficient business and communication platform and the focus of the 2006 edition on specific industry segments where Europe is a leader certainly contributed to our success. The new dates for 2007 will make the exposition accessible to even greater numbers of SEMICON exhibitors and will be more valuable to visitors”.
Indeed, the proximity of the annual SEMICON China event in late March made the early April timeframe of SEMICON Europa problematic for more than 100 exhibitors, who participate in both events. The new show dates will ease the time conflicts for these exhibitors and potentially enable others to participate as well.
SEMI currently holds seven annual SEMICON conferences in major global markets including the US, Japan, China, Korea, Europe and Singapore, as well as a full range of technical and executive conferences that focus on topics pertinent to global semiconductor and flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing.
