ETTN NERD Symposium
August 16 – 19
SEMA Garage in Detroit
The SEMA Emerging Trends and Technology Network (ETTN) is hosting a unique event that connects automotive aftermarket engineers with aftermarket product and service providers.
At the four-day Networking, Education, Resources, Development (NERD) Symposium, participating engineers will connect with service providers in one-on-one meetings; join in-depth education sessions focused on ADAS, emissions, diagnostics and simulation; and network with other engineers with similar concerns, challenges and needs. Participants will also attend the SEMA Garage in Detroit Grand Opening celebration, where they will be amongst the first to receive a private tour of the new facility and learn about the new resources available.
With such a targeted focus on education and networking for aftermarket engineers involved with ADAS, the symposium is unlike any other event. Nowhere else are engineers able to connect in quality meetings with so many product and service providers that cater specifically to them and the industry.
Online registration closes July 22nd.

Guidelines for Proper Usage of the SEMA Logo(s)
- SEMA encourages ETTN members to post the ETTN Member logo on any personal professional websites and use it on individualized professional-related materials such as letterhead, catalogs, business cards and advertisements.
- An ETTN member may not use the ETTN Logo to market a particular product, or affix the logo to a product or to product packaging.
- The ETTN Member logo may never be used by a ETTN member as a "stand-alone"; the logo must clearly say "Member" exactly as it is placed shown to the left.
- The ETTN Member logo may not, under any circumstances, be distorted in its display; the logo must be vertically positioned as originally intended (not tweaked, turned upside down, etc.).
- The ETTN Member logo may not be printed in any other color(s) than the original red, black and white scheme. If red is unattainable, then all black is permissible.
If you require a hi-res version of the logo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
