The Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) is to hold its Global Leadership Summit in conjunction with CES Asia 2016 scheduled for Shanghai May 11-13 'to promote cross-industry collaboration and innovation.'

 CES Asia claims to be the premier event in Asia for the consumer technology industry, showcasing the full innovation value-chain across the Asian market. It is owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the organization responsible for the annual CES show in Las Vegas, and co-produced by Intex Shanghai.

The Global Leadership Summit is an invitation-only event, 'dedicated to promoting the advancement of technology, business and education with the ultimate goal of improving efficiencies and strengthening the semiconductor industry.' It is GSA's flagship event held every two years in Shanghai. This year's event is titled 'The Rise of China'. It will discuss China's efforts to grow the semiconductor industry from within and how this will translate to new opportunities for the global market.

GSA president, Jodi Shelton, said: 'GLS brings together more than 200 leading executives from around the world to collaborate on solutions that will further enhance the contribution of the semiconductor industry. Collocating GLS with CES Asia was an easy decision as it provides the opportunity for these leaders to take their collaborative efforts one step further by including the consumer electronics ecosystem.'
