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

The Networking, Education, Resources, and Development (N.E.R.D.) Symposium gives product and service providers a unique opportunity to connect with automotive aftermarket engineers from various companies for one-on-one, quality meetings.

Through the event, product and service advisors have the distinct opportunity to explain their products/services, answer questions and network and build relationships with aftermarket engineers. This is the ideal time to share detailed information about your product and discuss collaborative opportunities. Participants will also be able to attend the Grand Opening celebration for the SEMA Garage and receive a private tour of the new facility.
