The ConFab 2017, May 14-17, in San Diego

BY PETE SINGER, Editor-in-Chief

I’m delighted to announce that The ConFab, our premier semiconductor manufacturing conference and networking event, will be held at the iconic Hotel del Coronado in San Diego on May 14-17, 2017. For more than 12 years, The ConFab, an invitation-only executive conference, has been the destination for key industry influencers and decision-makers to connect and collab- orate on critical issues.

The ConFab is the best place to seek a deeper under- standing on these and other important issues, offering a unique blend of market insights, technology forecasts and strategic assessments of the challenges and opportu- nities facing semiconductor manufacturers. In changing times, it’s critical for people to get together in a relaxed setting, learn what’s new, connect with old friends, make new acquaintances and find new business opportunities, and that’s what The ConFab is all about.

I’m also pleased to announce the addition of David J. Mount to The ConFab team as marketing and business development manager. Mount has a rich history in the semiconductor manufacturing equipment business and will be instrumental in guiding continued growth, and expanding into new high growth areas.

Mainstream semiconductor technology will remain the central focus of The ConFab, and the conference will be expanded with additional speakers, panelists, and VIP attendees who will participate from other fast growing and emerging areas. These include biomedical, automotive, IoT, MEMS, LEDs, displays, thin film batteries, photonics and advanced packaging. From both the device maker and the equipment supplier perspective, The ConFab 2017 is a must-attend networking conference for business leaders.

The ConFab conference program is guided by a stellar Advisory Board, with high level representatives from GlobalFoundries, Texas Instruments, TSMC, Cisco, Samsung, Intel, Lam Research, KLA-Tencor, ASE, NVIDIA, the Fab Owners Association and elsewhere.
