On June 11 2024, market leaders and high-tech experts from the semiconductor industry gathered in Dresden for the Silicon Saxony Day. High-tech specialists from Drees & Sommer and their partners were also present with their own exhibition booth.

More than 700 technology experts from science, research and industry from over 20 countries attended the 18th Silicon Saxony Day in Dresden. The discussions focused on artificial intelligence, sustainability and the recruitment of specialists and employees.. At the Drees & Sommer booth, visitors had the opportunity to exchange information about the latest technologies and trends.

Our key takeaways at a glance:

  • Given the increasing demand for semiconductors due to new advancements in AI, 5G, and IoT, manufacturers are currently expanding their production capacities in Germany as well.
  • To meet the growing demand for microelectronics components, high-tech facilities and semiconductor fabs must be designed, planned, constructed, and commissioned in the shortest possible time.
  • The rapid progress in chip technology necessitates regular modifications of production facilities as well as adjustments to media and layouts.
  • At the same time, it is crucial to consider and develop urban infrastructure from the outset.
