    Winter Tech Week 2015

    Winter Tech Week is the only tool and equipment industry event where the Japanese OEM’s share information through presentations and panel discussions and convey the upcoming service needs of new makes and models and the changes necessary in the tool and equipment industry to meet those needs.

    Winter Tech Week provides ETI Members with the opportunity for dialogue with the OEM’s and to receive the necessary information to provide the needed tools and equipment, showcase their new launches, and discuss any new tools or equipment that these new vehicles may require.

    ETI Members gain knowledge of new technologies that affect the aftermarket tool and equipment industry, receive instruction on the servicing and repair of new model vehicles, and learn of repair and service tools that may be needed for the new models.

    The main focus of ETI’s Winter Tech Week is to ensure that the proper tools, equipment, and information are in the shops by the time the new models hit the streets. Winter Tech Week also provides an opportunity to ensure that everything is updated for models that have already been released.

    Summer Tech Week 2016

    For the past 35 years one of the ways ETI has been meeting this goal is by conducting formal workshops held once a year with each automobile manufacturer, featuring presentations, discussions and participation in hands-on demonstrations.  These meetings have been grouped together, where possible, into week long sessions known as Tech Weeks. Tech Weeks are the best time to ask the automakers questions about the data they provide and learn about the new models and systems.  These meetings are a significant benefit of ETI membership.

    Many ETI member companies maintain that these meetings are just as important as the data that is provided by ETI through the TEK-NET Library.  Certainly, Tech Weeks are the best time to ask the automakers questions about the data they provide and learn about new models and systems.  It is also the right venue to find out what new safety features and procedures as well as what ecological requirements are recommended by each automaker so that ETI members can implement these features into their tools and equipment when necessary.

    ETI's Tech Weeks are a unique opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with key automaker personnel that can be very valuable to you and your company. As a product manager or engineer involved in product design that requires specific automaker information, these instructive workshops are priceless.

    This year's OEM Appreciation Dinner will be held at The Henry Ford Museum.
