Official Address from SEMI on Postponement of SEMICON SEA 2018


Dear valued exhibitors, delegates, partners and associates,

Good day to you all!

As you have been made aware, on the 10th April, Malaysia government announced that the 14th General Election (GE) will be held on the 9th of May 2018.  The announcement for the 14th GE voting date unfortunately clashes with SEMICON Southeast Asia 3 days event.   

Considerable work has been done over past 24-36 hours to assess, evaluate (including meetings in Kuala Lumpur with Ministries), reaching out to major stakeholders, partners and majority of exhibitors to reach credible deliberations of the impact this might mean to the SEMICON Southeast Asia event in perspectives of exhibitors, speakers, visitors and delegates alike. Of the many that we have considered, a few namely; respect the country's election process, visitorship and well-being of everyone bore heavily in our careful considerations to stay with the current SEMICON Southeast Asia timeline. More importantly also, whether such impact negates the intent of SEMICON towards forging connections and collaborations for our exhibitors, speakers, visitors and delegates both regionally and globally.  

On this ground, SEMI Southeast Asia has decided to postpone SEMICON Southeast Asia 2018 to 22-24 May 2018at the same venue. We are cognizant of the unnecessary complications this shift may have caused but we hope that you could appreciate the sincere intent of ensuring the event serves her rightful purpose.

At this time, all necessary work has commenced by our team to ensure a smooth postponement of the event.

In case of any other queries, our SEMI SEA team can be contactable at your disposal. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see you soon.
