Intel cancels IDF Taiwan 2009 to save costs

Posted on Monday, February 09 2009 @ 19:11:46 CET by

Intel announced it has called off the Intel Developer Forum Taiwan 200, originally slated for November, as part of its ongoing cost reduction efforts. Furthermore, the chip giant will also cut down the IDF Beijing 2009 conference, from two days into a more focused one-day event. Intel stated the IDF San Francisco, in September, will remain its flagship conference and will continue at a similar size as in previous years.
The move comes as a surprise to many Taiwan PC and motherboard makers. Intel has hosted the IDF Taiwan since 1996. Intel will also reformat IDF Beijing 2009, scheduled in April, from two days into a more China-focused one-day event. The maintaining of IDF Beijing indicates the growing importance of the China market, said market sources in Taiwan.

However, Intel insisted that it will continue to strengthen its cooperation with Taiwan's government and local IT makers to sustain continuing industry growth and technology exchange. This will be achieved through Intel's presence at the Computex Taipei 2009 and other technology seminars and activities.
