Founded in 1979, Asia America MultiTechnology Association (AAMA), formerly known as Asian American Manufacturers Association, is Silicon Valley’s largest and most established non-profit organization dedicated to the Asia American high-tech community. Having deep roots and a wide reach in the local Silicon Valley community and across Pacific Rim countries, as well as a proven track record of success as a Silicon Valley-based organization, AAMA expanded into Asia by launching chapters in Beijing, Shanghai, Pearl River Delta Region, Taipei and Seoul to better serve as the bridge between Silicon Valley and Asia. Each chapter hosts events to localize the effort to promote business relationships and works closely with Silicon Valley headquarters to ensure members realize the maximum benefit of the organization.
With a network of 10,000 participants representing over 2,000 companies in Silicon Valley and Chapters in Asia, AAMA is a nexus that provides leading executives and other stakeholders cross-fertilization of ideas and best-of-breed collaboration, resulting in successful business ventures throughout the Asia-Pacific region and global economy. AAMA’s membership represents a diverse and influential spectrum of technology industries, including the internet, wireless, telecommunications, multimedia, semiconductor, software, hardware, electronics and bio-tech industries, as well as financial and professional services industries that are integral to high-tech development. Through its diverse programs ranging from monthly Speakers Series to the annual Silicon Valley-Asia Technology Conference, AAMA provides a forum in which members can network, exchange ideas and share resources.
