KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia ─ 4 March 2020 ─ SEMI announced today that it is postponing SEMICON Southeast Asia 2020, the region’s premier event for the global electronics manufacturing supply chain, from 12-14 May 2020 to 11-13 August 2020. The postponement is due to concern surrounding the ongoing international coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The venue for SEMICON Southeast Asia 2020 will remain the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
“After close consultation with our stakeholders, which include partners, exhibitors, industry peers and the general community, we have made the necessary decision to postpone SEMICON Southeast Asia 2020,” said Bee Bee Ng, president of SEMI Southeast Asia. “We want to ensure that SEMICON Southeast Asia 2020 achieves its primary objective of forming connections and collaborations for exhibitors and visitors, both regionally and globally. It remains our mission and commitment to make the show highly successful and impactful.”
