ISS 2020 kicks off SEMI’s 50th anniversary year with insights into business, economic and tech trends

MILPITAS, Calif. – November 25, 2019 –   SEMI announced today that  Industry Strategy Symposium (ISS) 2020 will take place January 12-15 at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, Calif. with the theme Data Driven Innovation and Growth. ISS is the year’s first executive check-in, offering perspectives from leading analysts, researchers, economists, and technologists on forces impacting the semiconductor industry.
