SEMICON Europa co-locating with productronica and electronica, expanding electronics focus

BERLIN – 24 October 2016 – SEMI and Messe München today announced that SEMICON Europa will co-locate with productronica and electronica (alternating years) in Munich, Germany. For the first time, the co-located events (productronica and SEMICON Europa) will be held next year (14-17 November 2017), creating the strongest single event for electronics manufacturing in Europe, and broadening the range of attendees across the electronics supply chain.

productronica, the world’s leading trade fair for electronics development and production, and electronica, the world’s leading trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications, will now offer attendees an extended platform. With the inclusion of SEMICON Europa, which is focused on the electronics manufacturing supply chain and largely the semiconductor manufacturing, the co-located events will expand attendee opportunities to exchange ideas and promote technological progress.

Falk Senger, managing director of Messe München, says: "The co-location of these events strengthens the global orientation of electronica and productronica, in addition to reinforcing the importance of Munich as one of the epicenters of the international electronics industry.”

SEMICON Europa features the most advanced and innovative electronics manufacturing platform in Europe. Key segments include: semiconductor front-end and back-end manufacturing, MEMS/sensors, secondary equipment, advanced packaging, and applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT).

“The co-location of SEMICON Europa with productronica and electronica is an excellent fit with SEMI’s global trade association strategy to connect the breadth of the global electronics manufacturing supply chain.
