First Silicon Europe joint booth bundles Europe's semiconductor interests in Taiwan

  • With its first joint booth, Silicon Europe represented a diverse spectrum of the European microelectronics industry at SEMICON Taiwan 2017.

With nearly 45,000 visitors and more than 700 exhibitors, SEMICON Taiwan is one of the largest trade fairs in the semiconductor industry worldwide. When the key player's of a world market that has now grown to $ 400 Billion meet, Europe's players should certainly not be missing. With Silicon Europe, this already seems to be very successful. Instead of single national booths, a full dozen European exhibitors are present in Taiwan with Silicon Europe.

Silicon Europe, the umbrella organization of twelve European electronics and digitization clusters, represented a diverse spectrum of the European microelectronics industry at SEMICON Taiwan 2017. With a total of ten well-known exhibitors, including members of Silicon Saxony, Silicon Alps, DSP Valley and Minalogic, Silicon Europe presents itself for the first time at the fair with common interests and objectives. Together on one of the world's largest markets, the cluster network reaffirms its claim to a leading position in microelectronics. An important step, right here. After all, Taiwan is the second largest investment region in the semiconductors segment, as the SEMI World Fab Forcast Report has just published, with a total investment of 12.3 billion dollars, alone in the current financial year.

The combined appearance of Silicon Europe's exhibitors gives them more visibility, more relevance, and a growing chance to bring worthwhile business into the rail. In addition to a successful presentation at the community stand, many exhibitors took the opportunity to present their products and services on the connected "TechXPOT". In addition to this conference, twelve theme pavilions also invited all visitors and participants to discover Silicon Europe.

As the exhibitors at the Silicon Europe joint booth were consistently positive, Silicon Europe will again be represented in Taipei at SEMICON Taiwan next year.
