Epiwafer foundry and substrate maker IQE plc of Cardiff, Wales, UK has won a place at the GREAT Innovation Festival in Hong Kong (21-24 March).
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 supplying compound semiconductor wafers.
Kevin Burrowes, head of clients & markets at PwC, describes IQE as an “amazing company based in Wales that produces innovative components that are in almost all mobile phones.”
As overall winner, IQE will be represented at the four-day festival in Hong Kong, participating in events demonstrating the ‘Best of British’ to a wide business, academic and government audience from the UK, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea and the wider South East Asia region.
IQE reckons that the festival will provide it with a unique opportunity to meet potential new business partners while also further raising its profile across a wider network including government agencies and the investment community.
PwC will accompany IQE and facilitate a range of promotional and business matching activities.
