Product and Service Providers: Connect With Aftermarket Engineers at the '23 N.E.R.D. Symposium

NERDProduct and service providers can now register for the 2023 Networking, Education, Resources and Development (N.E.R.D.) Symposium--a unique event hosted by the SEMA Emerging Trends & Technology Network (ETTN) that brings together automotive aftermarket engineers with vendors who offer tools to enhance the product development process.

Taking place August 16-18 at the SEMA Garage in Detroit, Michigan, the N.E.R.D. Symposium is the best place for businesses to showcase how their product or service can help engineers be more effective and efficient. Vendors will meet one-on-one with engineers to discuss collaborative opportunities, while separate networking sessions will provide extra time and opportunities to build connections.      

Attendees will also learn about the latest developments in ADAS, emissions, diagnostics and simulation through education sessions provided by the SEMA Garage. The education sessions offer the latest updates on ADAS trends, testing equipment, simulation modeling and emissions along with active demonstrations of the tools being used.  

Vendors are identified as companies that resell final products to the mass consumer market (i.e., companies offering rapid prototyping, simulation, consulting, etc.) and those that offer tools or services to companies that support the development of hard parts, manufacturing processes, consumables or research and development (R&D).  

Product and service providers who are ETTN members and who register before June 5 can sign up now at the early-bird price of $375, compared to non-members at $475. Registration will increase to $575 for members and $675 for non-members after June 5. Engineer registration will open in June.
