ENGINEER
2022 N.E.R.D. Symposium

August 16 – 19 at SEMA Garage Detroit


WHAT IS THE N.E.R.D SYMPOSIUM?

The Networking, Education, Resources, and Development (N.E.R.D.) Symposium is a four-day event where engineers will receive quality, personal attention from service providers in one-on-one meetings to learn about their services; 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 attend the Grand Opening celebration of the SEMA Garage in Detroit, and be amongst the first to receive a private tour of the 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.
