Technology Leadership Series of the Americas is organized by SEMI Americas to connect more than 2,100 member companies and 1.3 million professionals worldwide to advance the technology and business of electronics manufacturing. The pinnacle of the series, SEMICON West, is celebrating its 50th year as the flagship event for the semiconductor industry. 

More than 2,100 market-related businesses have teamed with SEMI to help structure content for the Technology Leadership Series of the Americas. In addition, key interest groups have rallied with SEMI in the past 24 months to multiply interactions with the supply chain. In turn, these exchanges are calculated to increase the members’ respective technical ROIs. Technology communities include the:

The partner's list also includes global partner associations such as IEEE and SAE International, which leads technical learning for the mobility industry. 

Aligned from coast to coast, across a 12-month span, the series is designed to foster the most critical discussions for connecting both the short-term and long-term influences impacting the $2-trillion worth of emerging markets. The series aims to remove the guesswork about which of the world’s rapidly rising number of conferences provides the highest ROI for the senior executive, engineer-scientist and sales representative.

The Technology Leadership Series of the Americas select conferences are:

  • Industry Strategy Symposium—ISS  |  January 12–15, 2020  |  Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay, CA
    ISS kicks off the new year with an analysis of new and emerging demand drivers for new architectures, new logic and memory, new streams of investment and how to advance their arrivals and ensure longevities that enable the next industrial revolution.

  • FLEX and MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress—FLEX/MSTC  |  February 24–27, 2020  |  The DoubleTree by Hilton, San Jose, CA
    The co-located events provide the most comprehensive technical conference as FLEX focuses on the design and manufacture of flexible electronics, including sensors, IC integration, and substrates, while MSTC focuses on the technology behind the trends in MEMS and sensors for autonomous mobility in mobile devices, IoT, drones, and autonomous transportations. 

  • Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference—ASMC  |  May 4–7, 2020  |  Saratoga Springs City Center, Saratoga Springs, NY
    ASMC improves the industry’s advanced manufacturing strategies and methodologies through a combined sharing of highlights and insights by device makers, equipment and materials suppliers, and academics. Women in Semiconductors will hold their (third) annual workshop.

  • SEMICON West   |  July 21–23, 2020  |  Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA
    SEMICON West connects the entire extended electronics supply chain— in one place, at one time. It’s the premier place to re-connect with your contacts and make new ones to drive your business forward. NEW this year—Welcome ES Design West to the show floor which includes a Smart Design Pavilion with a Meet the Experts Theater. 

  • Strategic Materials Conference—SMC  |  September 28–30, 2020  |  The DoubleTree by Hilton, San Jose, CA
    SMC shares the latest developments from around the world in strategic materials that will be vital for new markets, system creation, heterogeneous integration, and packaging.

  • MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress—MSEC  |  October 12–14, 2020  |  Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa, San Diego, CA
    MSEC presents how the next generations of MEMS and sensors will be designed and produced to meet on-going growth for emerging markets. MSEC is the only event where MEMS and sensors executives can exchange ideas and information while networking with partners, customers, and competitors.

  • International Technology Partners Conference—ITPC  |  November 1–4, 2020  |  Fairmont Orchid, The Big Island of Hawaii
    ITPC advances productive trans-pacific relationships to help avoid threatened supply chain prosperity, leveraging thought-leadership and relationship-building programs for executive-level engagement.  

At the peak of the collaborative series, SEMICON West 2020 provides renowned global presenters and hands-on demos, at both strategic and technical levels, for up-to-minute predictions and breakthroughs on upcoming trends and enablers. Based on direction from SEMI members, this year there are five vertical application areas that are hosted within Smart Pavilions. Each pavilion will host a Meet the Experts Theater featuring short topical presentations by experts in the areas of Design, Transportation, Manufacturing, Workforce Development, and MedTech.
