    July 2020 Update

    Next Monday, July 20, is the official kickoff to Virtual SEMICON West! If you haven’t made plans to join us—and thousands of your industry peers—now is the time. The SEMI Americas team has worked hard to put together an impressive lineup of keynotes, speakers, exhibitors, and interactive pavilions. Please see below for more details or just go straight to the event site to register and plan your week.

    And just as with the in-person event, there will be a SEMI “lounge,” where you can learn more about SEMI programs and activities. I’ll be lurking somewhere behind the (virtual) ferns, so please “stop by” and ask me anything that’s on your mind!

    I look forward to “seeing” you all online next week!
