By Ashley Reyes

Product and service providers have until Tuesday, August 1, to sign up for theN.E.R.D. 2023 Networking, Education, Resources and Development (N.E.R.D.) Symposium, a dynamic event where they will create beneficial connections with aftermarket engineers who are actively seeking resources to streamline their product development.

By signing up for the event, taking place August 16-18 at the SEMA Garage in Detroit, Michigan, businesses will be able to:    

  • Showcase how their product or service can help engineers be more effective and efficient.  
  • Meet one-on-one with engineers to explore possibilities for collaboration and co-innovation.  
  • Take part in networking sessions that will provide opportunities to build connections and trust.  
  • Gain firsthand knowledge of market demands and customer pain points, helping businesses to align their services with industry needs.  
  • Learn about advancements in alternative internal combustion engine (ICE) technology, vehicle communication standards, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and more through high-powered education sessions. 

Product and service providers 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).
