iNEMI Schedules Regional Roadmap Workshops in North America, Asia and Europe during June

Herndon, VA — April 7, 2010 — The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) is scheduling regional workshops to review its 2011 Roadmap.  Meetings will be held during June in Las Vegas, Nevada; Taoyuan, Taiwan; and Leuven, Belgium.

“Work on the roadmap chapters will be at about the midway point in June, and we find this is a good time for an industry review.  It allows us time to make any course corrections that may be necessary,” said Chuck Richardson, roadmapping director for iNEMI.  “We select chapters that will be of interest in a particular region, review the data and solicit input from industry at these workshops.  This process globalizes the roadmap’s perspective, helping us ensure that regional issues are addressed in the final roadmap.  It also gives participants a ‘first look’ at some of our key projections and predictions.”

The workshop schedule is as follows.  Link to the URLs below for additional information about meeting location, registration fee, agenda, etc. for each workshop.  The registration fee covers the meeting, including lunch, plus a copy of the 2011 Roadmap when it is released to industry in the first quarter of 2011 (a 250 USD value within North America and 325 USD outside of North America).
