SEMICON Taiwan, a major semiconductor industry gathering, opened Wednesday in Taipei.
The three-day event, held in the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, attracted 700 exhibitors with more than 2,300 booths, according to its organizer SEMI, an industry association representing the electronics manufacturing supply chain.
This year's event saw many of the global top technologists gather to discuss the latest trends and opportunities across smart vertical markets including manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and data.
At the exhibition hall, some Chinese mainland companies have set up large booths to promote their products.
"When we first attended the event three years ago, our booth was only around 20 square meters, and now its more than 80 square meters," said Li Qian, general manager of the Taiwan office of Beijing NAURA Microelectronics Equipment Co., Ltd.
The company has seen both employees and orders grow over the years, Li said.
The situation is echoed by Lin Jishun, sales manager of Shanghai Micro Electronics Equipment (Group) Co., Ltd. The company founded its Taiwan office in 2011 and has participated in each year's SEMICON.
"Now that many customers have developed trust in our products and services, the business is going smoother," Lin said.
