Tech Week Rules
IMPORTANT: ETI's Tech Week events are restricted to full members who are current with membership dues and only full members affiliated with a particular vertical group are allowed to attend that vertical group's meetings unless a special invitation to attend has been extended by ETI staff.
Attendees must sign for their badges at ETI Registration and wear them in order to be admitted to any ETI event.
The registration process, name badges, and bus transportation are ETI's method of assuring security during the ETI Tech Week events.
No members are to schedule any separate business meetings with OEM personnel during the three days of Tech Week. It is vital that all ETI participants attend the full OEM schedule on each day. Any deviation from this policy will be viewed as an ethics violation.
For data security reasons each OEM will only be providing one copy of their technical information to ETI. ETI will then distribute the information to each of you. Scan Tool data stream information will be distributed to the members of the Scan Tool Vertical Group only and are subject to the terms of any existing license requirements. All other information will be distributed to everyone.
Bus transportation is provided. They are there to alleviate any parking problems and reduce rental car expenses. Under special circumstances you may take alternative transportation, but you are on your own. If you do not go in with the group, you may not get in at all.
Please be on time for your bus. We recommend that you plan to be in the lobby 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Due to a tight schedule, we are unable to hold the bus past departure time.
Dress for the entire event is business casual. Please; no shorts, jeans or t-shirts.
Remember that we are the guests of the OEMs. Please treat each OEM presenter and facility with the utmost respect. Try to avoid controversy during the week. Go ahead and ask the tough questions, just keep the schedule in mind should a debate arise.
