SEMI® Silicon Valley Lunch Forum Presents –

The 13th Annual Silicon Valley Forecast Luncheon

Date: Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Time: 11:30am–1:30pm
Santa Clara Marriott
2700 Mission College Blvd, Santa Clara, CA

Semiconductor sales are booming, equipment sales are strong, materials are in high demand so why is there still a feeling that this recovery will be short-lived. Is there a double dip in the forecast? How will the overall economics of our nation and the world affect the semiconductor industry? Why in the midst of the one most formidable recoveries we have seen in the last 20 years do we still feel like the other shoe has to drop?

Come to the Silicon Valley Lunch Forum’s 13th annual Forecast lunch on August 25 at the Santa Clara Marriott Hotel to find the answers.

Equipment Perspective
“What’s Next?”

There is no question that 2010 will be a record growth year, but what about 2011? Concerns are mounting that the economic recovery may be faltering, that semiconductor output is running ahead of electronics demand, and that inventories are starting to grow again. In this presentation, Mr. Johnson will look at what Gartner currently expects for next year as the industry moves into a more normal longer term growth patterns.
