SARS threat postpones SEMICON Singapore

APRIL 9–SINGAPORE– Due to ongoing concerns about the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) today announced the postponement of SEMICON Singapore 2003, an exposition dedicated to semiconductor manufacturing technology.

The exposition which was scheduled to be held from May 6-8, 2003 at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exposition Centre (SICEC), has been rescheduled for August 12-14, 2003 at the same

“We believe that rescheduling the show is the most prudent action to take,” said Stanley Myers, president and CEO of SEMI. “A number of exhibitors as well as their customers have instituted travel restrictions or are hesitant to participate in public gatherings in Singapore at this time.

Postponement of the exposition and its associated programs is the most appropriate way to respond to current concerns while maintaining the premiere regional event for showcasing semiconductor manufacturing, testing, assembly and packaging technology.”

“We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause SEMICON Singapore participants. We also wish to assure all exhibitors and visitors that we are committed to preserving the established quality of this important industry event,” said Myers. “The Suntec Singapore management has been very helpful in assisting us with new dates and we appreciate their ongoing support of SEMICON Singapore during this unusually difficult period.”
