SEMICON Southeast Asia Changes Date to Accommodate Malaysian Elections

SEMICON Southeast Asia, originally scheduled to run from May 8-10, 2018, is being moved to May 22-24, 2018, to support the recently announced Malaysian election that will happen on May 9.

The venue for SEMICON Southeast Asia, the newly constructed Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), remains unchanged. SEMI, the industry association representing the global manufacturing supply chain for the electronics industry, made the announcement of the changes.

The postponement is in respect to Malaysian exhibitors and visitors to exercise their right to vote, said Ng Kai Fai, President of SEMI Southeast Asia. The decision was made in view of the election date and following discussions with SEMICON Southeast Asia stakeholders.

"We highly value and respect the country's election process, which is very important for Malaysia and Malaysians," Kai Fai said. "We also want to ensure that SEMICON Southeast Asia achieves its primary objective of forming connections and collaborations for exhibitors and visitors, both regionally and globally. We have received very strong support from our stakeholders and are confident and reassured that this will be the largest SEMICON Southeast Asia show to date."
