Beyond BRICs: Building South America’s Semiconductor Future

November 18-20, 2014
Hilton Buenos Aires Hotel
Buenos Aires, Argentina

The growing strength of Latin American markets and the continued global expansion of electronics manufacturing are turning attention to microelectronics business opportunities in South America. Although the semiconductor industry is in the early stages of development, several established players—including Unitec Blue in Argentina, and Unitec and Ceitec in Brazil—are already on the ground and planning new investment in front-end and back-end manufacturing, promising to make South America the next frontier for microelectronics. Argentina and Brazil have the resources, infrastructure, investment, and a growing skilled workforce, but challenges remain in bringing large-scale semiconductor manufacturing to the region.

The inaugural SEMI South America Semiconductor Strategy Summit aims to open the doors to the South American market and connect global leaders in the microelectronics industry with local companies, investors, and government officials focused on expansion of the semiconductor industry in the region. Business and technology experts from South America, Europe, Asia, and the United States will explore the development of the South American semiconductor industry, address the challenges to growth and expansion, and define the opportunities for companies ready to serve this emerging market.

The summit provides an exceptional opportunity to meet face-to-face with representatives and executives from local and global companies, government officials, industry experts, economic development specialists, and analysts. Tabletop display and sponsorship opportunities are available to give you even greater exposure to showcase your company, products, and services in front of potential buyers and technology partners in South America.


Who Should Attend

We are inviting global stakeholders with an interest in the South American semiconductor market—from the equipment, materials, device and R&D communities—to share their vision, insights and outlook with local business, technology, educational, and investment communities. Be part of the exciting developments in the emerging South American market and join us in Buenos Aires in November!
