ETI’s Mission is to advance the vehicle service industry by providing technical data and open dialog between the manufacturers of transportation products, government regulators and the providers of tools, equipment and service information.

ETI is one of the most respected trade associations in the automotive aftermarket, giving fair and equitable representation to all segments of the equipment and tool industry. The Institute is an association of automotive tool and equipment manufacturers and technical information providers and training organizations.

Today, ETI meets the needs of a diverse industry. Its members’ products range from high tech diagnostic tools to traditional hand tools. ETI membership benefits, events, and services are tailored to meet the needs of all tool and equipment makers – whether manufacturers of highly technical diagnostic equipment or hand-tools, a large manufacturer or a small to mid-sized business.

ToolTech 2014

April 28-May 1, 2014

This year's ToolTech takes place in the beautiful Sonoma Valley in California. Our theme is "The Connected Car Meets The Connected Shop." The “Connected Shop” has been evolving for almost 2 decades, with North American and European standards defining how shop management systems, information systems and diagnostic tools can share information in a seamless environment.

Our hotel is the Fairmont Mission Inn Sonoma, the Opening Reception is at the Imagery Estate Winery, and the Closing Dinner takes place at the Paradise Ridge Winery.
