Special Event at IMAPS ‘03

MMRC Presents a

Free of Charge for IMAPS 2003 ATTENDEES!

Marketing Forum
Chairs: Michael P. O'Neill, Heraeus Inc. - CMD; Howard Imhof, Metalor Corp.; Adam Singer, Cookson Electronics
8 am - 11:25 am

The MMRC (Microelectronics Marketing Research Council) will offer a free-of-charge Marketing Forum to all IMAPS 2003 attendees who wish to participate. The Marketing Forum will be held on Wednesday morning, November 19, 2003, at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA (Room number TBA).

2003 was forecasted as a year of continuing recovery for various segments of the microelectronics industry. This session will help clarify if those forecasts have been fulfilled, which technologies are “hot”, and which continue to struggle. With many companies resources stretched thin, how does this impact their ability to develop and deliver product? What was the impact of war, SARS, and the overall geopolitical environment on our industry? With manufacturing continuing its migration to low cost regions, how does this impact YOUR business? These questions and more will be addressed.

Speakers will discuss their analysis and insights into various current and emerging markets of interest to both current and prospective IMAPS members. Some of these markets are Passive Devices, WLAN, Automotive, Broadband, Wireless, manufacturing in China, etc. The Forum will feature four presentations with a panel discussion at the end that will allow for audience participation in this not to be missed event!
