SSIA hosted the Automation Supplier Day 2020 on 16-17 July 2020. This year’s event was held on a virtual platform with record-breaking participation. It brought together over 250 participants from over 100 MNCs, SMEs and other organizations. Many of the participants said that it was an experience to see both suppliers and clients share openly on this platform, and they were keen to explore collaboration opportunities after the event.
Automation Supplier Day is also a platform for business networking and establishing relationships. SSIA has set up a Linkedin Group for participants to share, network and collaborate with other end-users and suppliers. Meanwhile, the Association will help arrange virtual meet-ups if there is a need.
Said Ang Wee Seng, Executive Director of SSIA, during the event, “SSIA is transforming to better represent the semiconductor industry in the fight against the COVID-19. We will continue to launch a series of initiatives to help companies focus on productivity improvement and, most importantly, to stay competitive by innovating their product and services. Do keep a lookout to our two major events coming up – the Semiconductor Supply Chain Conference in August and SSIA Summit 2020 in October. We hope to seek your continuous support for these events.”
