On behalf of our CEO Dr. Tom Caulfield and the rest of our GF team, we are excited to invite you to GTC 2020 North America, GF’s first 100% virtual event.
The world has changed dramatically in the last several months. People are reimagining the way they live and work, and companies are reassessing how they do business.

During this time, semiconductors have been at the heart of the products that have sustained us. Laptop computers, noise-cancelling earbuds and smartphones have kept us connected for school and work. Our smart, connected home products have made sheltering in place more manageable. Smart agriculture and industrial products are ensuring stable global supply chains. Super computers and medical devices help our scientists and doctors in the fight against COVID-19. Semiconductors play a vital role in our lives now more than ever presenting both opportunities and challenges for our industry.

Join Tom on September 24th for a real conversation with Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf. Engage in a question and answer session with leading industry executives including the President and CEO of the Semiconductor Industry Association John Neuffer. Listen to lively roundtable and panel discussions featuring industry visionaries, technical gurus and thought leaders about the challenges our industry faces, the innovations on the horizon, and the opportunities we have together to accelerate the digital future.

Please join us at GTC 2020
