Technical Experts Will Abound at SAE 2010 World Congress

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 1, 2010 - Attendees of the SAE 2010 World Congress will have many opportunities to talk with automotive technical experts throughout the event. A new feature this year will be the “Chat with the Experts.”

“Chat with the Experts” is designed to encourage small groups to explore subjects of interest to them, pose questions and share information in an informal setting. The technical experts who will facilitate the discussions will provide a short, opening statement on the topic, and then all will engage in meaningful dialogue.

The SAE 2010 World Congress will be held April 13-15 at Cobo Center in Detroit.
