Overview and Event Status

SEMI has always made the health and safety of our members and guests who attend events our top priority. We continue to monitor Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, including advisories from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the needs of our members. If plans for any upcoming events change, SEMI will immediately notify event exhibitors, visitors and speakers, but you can also find the latest updates on events listed below.  We have also provided an Executive Summary of the industry’s response to COVID-19 based on input from member surveys and other sources.

Upcoming Event Status

Currently, we are holding all other upcoming events as planned, but we will add updates on this page as SEMI determines the status of each event. Should our monitoring show any heightened risk for attendees for any events in the U.S. or abroad, SEMI will immediately send out a notification on the status.

Before traveling to conferences, we recommend that you review information from your local health agencies and take reasonable precautions for your protection. For the latest U.S. CDC guidance and recommendations relating to travel to specific countries, visit their Traveler’s Health Notices.

As a precaution, we are implementing measures – such as providing hand sanitizer stations and making masks available – at upcoming events to help safeguard everyone in attendance. Additionally, we are implementing the travel screening policy listed below.

Please feel free to contact your local event representative or semihq@semi.org with any additional questions or concerns.

SEMI Coronavirus Travel Screening Policy

Following the guidance of the U.S. CDC and the requirements of a growing number of our member companies, SEMI is requiring all registrants to confirm that they have completed travel to any Coronavirus (COVID-19) affected areas as identified by the U.S. CDC at least 15 days before the start of the specific SEMI event to avoid any risk of infecting other attendees.  Attendees must also confirm they have not traveled to these affected areas in the past 15 days upon arriving at the event in order to receive their badge. For an updated list of these affected areas, please visit the U.S. CDC Coronavirus Travel Information Page.

Health Best Practices

Current information indicates that basic health practices can protect against the spread of COVID-19. We strongly urge exhibitors and attendees to follow appropriate guidelines and protocols suggested by the WHO and U.S. CDC to help improve safety for all participants. Best practices include:

  • Limiting physical contact such as hand shaking and sharing business cards.
  • Covering mouth and nose with tissue for coughs and sneezes.
  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
  • Routinely cleaning frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  • Staying home if sick. At the present time, respiratory symptoms are more likely due to influenza or common cold.
