SESHA 30th Annual Symposium (2008)

SESHA is happy to announce it will hold it’s 30th annual symposium and exposition at the Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, Portland-Lloyd Center in Portland OR, on March 25 through March 29, 2008. Please mark your calendars!

As some SESHA members may know, SESHA had communicated that the 2008 annual symposium would be held in Reno, NV at a facility and date to be announced later, however the Portland location gives us a chance to hold the symposium in a semiconductor hub, and, at a facility that has received the Green Seal certification for Lodging Properties! Please click on the links for more information on the Doubletree, Portland-Lloyd Center, and Green Seal.

We’re excited to be able to offer our members what we consider to be a superior location at a facility that shares our commitment to the environment. Please plan on joining us for what promises to be an outstanding event!
