IQE plc wins a place at the GREAT Innovation Festival to be held in Hong Kong from 21-24 March 2018.
The chance to represent the best of British innovation, sponsored by PwC, was presented during a launch event in London last week. IQE was selected as winner from entrants across the UK because of its global impact and technology leadership in the supply of advanced compound semiconductor wafers.
Kevin Burrowes, Head of Clients and Markets at PwC announced on social media: “And the #GREATInnovation @PwC_UK winner was IQE. Amazing company based in Wales that produces innovative components that are in almost all mobile phones. Well done and look forward to seeing them in Hong Kong late March at @GREATBritain festival of Innovation.”
As overall winner, IQE will be represented at the four day festival in Hong Kong, participating in a number of events demonstrating the “Best of British” to wide business, academic and government audience from the UK, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea and the wider South East Asia region.
The Festival will provide IQE with a unique opportunity to meet potential new business partners whilst also further raising its profile across a wider network including government agencies and the investment community.
PwC, one of the sponsors of the GREAT Innovation Festival, will accompany IQE and facilitate a range of promotional and business matching activities.
