ETTN’s Inaugural N.E.R.D. (Networking, Education, Resources and Development) Symposium will be held in August 2022 at the SEMA Garage in Detroit, Michigan.

This multi-faceted, three-day event is designed specifically for engineers and product designers. Event highlights include:

  • A day of touring and learning about the new SEMA Garage’s many capabilities.
  • Two days of rotating meetings where attendees will have access to a wide range of service providers to ask questions and develop contacts. These service providers will include testing labs, tool/machinery manufacturers, intellectual property protection experts and more.
  • In-depth trainings and keynote speakers digging deep into some of the hottest topics in the industry today.
  • Networking opportunities for attendees to build a support team to lean on with questions or advice throughout the following years.

More information on the event will be sent out in ETTN communications, SEMA eNews and social media starting next year. Stay tuned for more information and visit for the latest ETTN membership news and resources.
