SEMICON South East Asia in Kuala Lumpur
SEMICON Southeast Asia, the region's premier gathering of the industry for connecting people, products, technologies and solutions across the global electronics manufacturing supply chain, will debut in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia from 8 to 10 May at the new Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
The move from Penang to Kuala Lumpur, increasing the available event size, attracts new participation from key electronics clusters in Malaysia’s Central, Northern and Southern regions for greater access to the entire electronics manufacturing downstream supply chain—as well as accommodating the growing number of visitors and exhibitors. Kuala Lumpur is an ideal travel gateway for international professionals and visitors.
The growth of SEMICON Southeast Asia is attributed to the rapid expansion and robust growth of the Electrical & Electronics (E&E) sector across Southeast Asia, with companies emerging as world leaders in mobile, automotive, medical and IoT supply chains.
As one of the high growth markets in the region, Malaysia contributes 44 percent of the total manufacturing output and 26 percent of the total GDP of the region and is forecasted to generate approximately U.S. $382 billion in exports in 2018.
