Why attend GSF?



For over a decade the Global Semiconductor Forum (GSF) has been hosting the most well-respected and high-ranking semiconductor developers to present, discuss and collaborate on key concerns, ideas and trends within the current market.

In its infancy GSF provided an opportunity for chip manufacturers to come together with a range of potential suppliers who could help achieve industry goals and milestones. Since that time GSF has evolved to be a multi-feature event which offers further benefit through its collocation with the Global Electronics Forum (GEF), thus allowing you, the chip developer, to learn from your customer, anticipating future trends and expectations.

For 2018, GSEF has been re-branded to show more integration than ever before. The dual-streamed programme and complimentary topic placing 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, design, manufacturing, operations or technology.

Outside of the programme, GSEF is being built to support your objectives as a chip developer. The GSEF campaign is responding to your feedback and targeting new and unique technology and service providers who can support you in reaching your goals. For you this means relevant and lucrative business meetings on site which result in real-life benefit to you and your company.

Our promise to you is that; attending GSEF will directly contribute to your bottom line whether it is through cost saving efficiencies, lucrative investment opportunities, solutions to resource-intensive challenges, or simply opening a door to a new strategic direction.

Who should attend GSF?

The objective of GSF is to provide solutions and opportunities to chip developers globally. This is achieved through strategic and operational content, various networking environments and also a formal 1:1 business meeting set-up which allows sourcing and selection of qualified supplier solutions.
