The first Semiconductor event hosted in the GCC will take place in Muscat, Oman represented by the Ministry of Transport Communications and information technology sector on February 22-23, 2023, combining an international executive audience, very important topics and exclusive access to incredible cultural highlights for all attendees. Number of CEOs of companies working in the field of semiconductors and electronic chips from across the world, including Aspeed, Applied Materials and Westerwood Global, and several experts and specialists in the field will participate in the summit.

The Ministry is the responsible body for formulating and implementing the government digital strategies and programs in the Sultanate of Oman. Its main mission is to raise the level of efficiency in government performance, support innovation in service delivery, and enhance spending and economic growth through the use of information and communication technology.

Oman is the perfect hub for the creation of semiconductor design and infrastructure in the GCC. It is home to a young, prosperous and highly educated population. In the global and regional hunt for tech talent, Oman will become a primary destination for leading tech companies establishing global development centers, and for local champions expanding internationally.

DR. Ali bin Amer Al-Shidhani, Undersecretary for the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology, said “This summit will be organized to implement Oman Vision 2040 aims according to the ministry interest to bring more investment projects in communications and information technology sector in the Sultanate of Oman and attract global companies in the semiconductors industry. This will enhance economic diversification and provide job opportunities to Omani youths’’.

“The International Semiconductor Executive Summits (ISES) advisory board members, members and community and I are committed to continually improving and reimagining how we expand to further serve and engage a more comprehensive value chain. In rapidly growing and emerging markets, like the GCC, we need to use our resources to stay ahead of the curve by delivering a valuable, neutral platform to maximize and grow the supply chain that the World desperately needs,” said Salah Nasri, President of the International Semiconductor Executive Summits (ISES)

International Semiconductor Executive Summits (ISES) Middle East offers full membership benefits to both local and multinational companies within the country through this platform. International Semiconductor Executive Summits (ISES) Middle East members will have access to the rich, open dialogues with subject matter experts on the industry, technologies, markets, business practices and business models with personalized, local representation, advocacy and highly-curated events.

I.S.E.S. provides a unique industry platform dedicated for collaboration, where global leaders connect and innovate with peers, partners and customers to accelerate the semiconductor industry.


A semiconductor is a substance that has specific electrical properties that enable it to serve as a foundation for computers and other electronic devices. It is typically a solid chemical element or compound that conducts electricity under certain conditions but not others. This makes it an ideal medium to control electrical current and everyday electrical appliances. Semiconductor or chip is used to power technologies that enrich the lives of consumers and make businesses run smarter, faster, and more efficiently. Moreover, semiconductor industry has become a significant global industry with an effective impact on the global economy. Sales of semiconductors expanded globally, McKinsey estimates that global semiconductor sales could hit $1 trillion annually by 2030, compared to $600 billion in 2021.
