The Sun Sets on the SPC and Rises Anew on the ETTN

Emerging Trends and Technology Network (ETTN) - SEMA CouncilWelcome to the Emerging Trends and Technology Network (ETTN), SEMA’s newest network, which is an evolution of the Street Performance Council (SPC) and even earlier Sport Compact Council.

In recent times, the SPC experienced success on the cutting edge of emerging trends and technology and often led the way for other SEMA councils and member companies. While this proved to be of great value to members, it was not easy to draw an intuitive connection with the council’s name and mission. “Street performance” was just too broad, and the council was more narrowly focused on exploring cutting-edge technology. Therefore, it made sense to change the name from SPC to ETTN and reboot.
