Global Semiconductor and Electronics Forum (GSEF) brings together the end to end value chain in semiconductors, electronics and design supply chain. As one of the industry’s most important gatherings, the Forum explores current and future trends and finds solutions to business-hindering challenges.
GSEF Virtual Series 2021 will present the new format and highly focused online events on the most important industry issues. This will include virtual conferences, webinars and online polling throughout the year in order to engage with the market and explore how technology is transforming sectors across the electronics supply chain.
This platform will give you access to all potential clients to meet and discuss future business opportunities. In each edition, senior executives and top experts in Semiconductor, Automotive, 5G, Industry 4.0, AI, IoT, Cyber Security and Consumer Electronics markets will shed light on the most pressing topics and discuss the latest industry trends.
GSEF Virtual Series 2021 are composed of:
• Smart Mobility Conference – 23 March 2021
A dedicated event looking at key aspects and emerging solutions to enhance mobility and infrastructure as well as the main issues around automation and connectivity.
• Online Poll: A specially commissioned survey on enterprise of the future
• Semiconductor Innovation: More than Moore and moving to the edge – 17 June 2021

We are also planning to bring back our annual live Global Semiconductor and Electronics Forum (GSEF) in November 2021.
Join like-minded peers to learn new perspectives and case studies through presentations, panel discussions, interactive roundtables and live Q&A sessions; create new business partnerships and meet with key decision makers within the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing industry.
Meet senior executives to make valuable connections through one-to-one meetings and networking service offered by our virtual platform.
Simply register, login on the day and get ready to connect and learn. With the right network at your fingertips, learning and networking have never been so easy.
Recent world developments have put a spotlight on the role smart connected devices will play in society and our everyday lives. As a result, developers seek to understand how devices’ abilities to sense, think, act and connect will help them anticipate and automate − to simplify life and remove barriers. In this talk we will share how these abilities are becoming a central feature across all connected devices and are driving convergence and commonality in approach.
