The International Microelectronics And Packaging Society (IMAPS) announced that IC Insights will receive a new award from IMAPS Global Business Council named the GBC Partnership Award.
The GBC Partnership Award recognizes corporations that invest their time and talent in helping IMAPS execute on the society’s mission ‘to lead the Microelectronics Packaging, Interconnect and Assembly Community, providing means of communicating, educating, and interacting at a global level for the business issues the industry faces.’ The award will be presented Thursday, February 17th to Bill McClean, President of IC Insights following his talk on “Reasons for Optimism in 2011” at the IMAPS Arizona Chapter luncheon held in Tempe.
“IC Insights has delivered timely keynote addresses at our first quarter Global Business Council and AZ Chapter meetings the past two years. Their ability to communicate key industry trends and provide accurate semiconductor market forecasts during this period of volatility has helped our members better understand the diverse semiconductor market and business cycles. We feel our GBC attendees will get great insight from their luncheon keynote on March 7th that helps bridge a very strong program on the eras of 3D and energy efficiency,” stated Lee Smith of Amkor who serves as VP of Marketing and Membership for IMAPS along with his role as the GBC 3D packaging co-chair.
“The IMAPS events have allowed IC Insights to communicate our outlook and hear the growth perspective’s from decision makers across the semiconductor supply chain. Confidence established in the first and second quarters, was a key reason the industry was able to respond quickly to the strong rebound in the second half of 2009 and carry that through the first three quarters of 2010 to give us a boom year that met our aggressive expectations. So it is an honor to be recognized and invited to continue participating in these important IMAPS events,” noted Bill McClean.
Note: Monday March 7th, Brian Matas VP of Market Research at IC Insights will deliver the keynote address at the Global Business Council’s Spring 2011 event held at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort in Fountain Hills, AZ.
