BERLIN, Germany – 15 December, 2020 – Global industry executives from all seven SEMI regions will gather online for the inaugural SEMI Technology Unites Global Summit, February 15-19, 2021, for keynotes on the power of technology to unite the world and insights on how the microelectronics industry can shape the digital future. The virtual event will connect industry leaders and stakeholders across the entire electronics design and manufacturing value chain for the latest developments, trends and innovations in key areas of industry growth including smart mobility, smart medtech, and MEMS and sensors. Registration is open.


Semiconductors are revolutionizing the way people work and live by driving innovation across smart technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and quantum computing and industries such as transportation and healthcare.

“The $426 billion semiconductor industry, the heartbeat of the $2 trillion global electronics design and manufacturing ecosystem, is powering global digital transformation,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “This megatrend, already accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, will help fuel the continued growth of the semiconductor industry – and is only possible when people, companies and industries collaborate. The SEMI Technology Unites Global Summit is an excellent platform for industry stakeholders to come together to help shape the digital future for societal and economic prosperity and to make a smart world a reality.”

The summit will open with the Executive Forum, where international technology leaders will offer insights into the future of smart technologies. The forum will enable connections and partnerships and illuminate market opportunities for creating a smart, sustainable future.
