Global Semiconductor and Electronics Forum 2020

Global Semiconductor and Electronics Forum 2020, which was originally scheduled for March 13-15, 2020, has been postponed to protect the health and safety of our delegates, in response to the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding and support.


Global Semiconductor and Electronics Forum (GSEF) is based around bringing together the end to end value chain in semiconductors and consumer electronics. It’s the industry’s most important gathering that explores current and future trends, stands out as best for business promotions and finding solutions to business-hindering challenges.

Each year we create a comprehensive agenda, attracting key speakers and an attentive audience gathers to share ideas and inspire the innovations of the future.

The dual-streamed programme has been engineered to ensure that as an attendee you can gain benefit from a full two days of relevant content, regardless of whether your personal focus is strategy, decision, manufacturing, operations or technology.

Topics covered at GSEF 2020

The hottest areas for semiconductor & electronics growth in the coming years are the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive, 5G, virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR), and artificial intelligence (AI). These applications will challenge semiconductor technology in multiple ways.


Arena International is closely monitoring the development of COVID-19 and any potential impact on the event. The safety of our attendees is our top priority and we are following guidance from the World Health Organisation, national governments and health authorities.

We are taking several precautionary measures including the below and ask that attendees support us by practicing good hygiene.

1. We will have hand sanitizer available for all attendees and will be disinfecting surfaces between each session

2. We will be reinforcing good hand hygiene​ via signage outside all conference rooms

3. We urge attendees to refrain from handshaking

4. We urge any attendee who appears to have a cough, difficulty breathing, or who is obviously unwell, to seek medical attention

5. We ask that anyone who has recently travelled to the these locations - China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Macau, Italy and Iran - get in touch with us directly


Providing the only platform which supports progression of the entire end-to-end value chain, GSEF brings together representatives from chip developers to final application creators to network, explore current and future trends, find solutions to business-hindering challenges, and in some instances, do business on site.
