Noise and Vibration Conference and Exhibition

May 15-18, 2023 | Grand Rapids, MI

Attend the ONLY Dedicated Mobility NVH Event in North America

The SAE Noise and Vibration Conference and Exhibition (NVC), held biennially, is the only event of its kind – uniting more than 1,000 forward thinking engineers, executives, researchers, designers, academia, and more to discuss the latest cutting-edge technologies surrounding NVH and sound quality.

What to expect:

Coming in May of 2023, plan to take part in three-plus days of technical sessions, workshops, panels, and a hands-on exhibition focused on practical solutions around powertrains, exhausts, tires, interiors, and external environments. Plus, numerous critical networking opportunities with technical leaders spanning the full range of NVH.

What you will learn:

Attendees will learn the latest scientific discoveries and technological innovations in materials, components, systems, testing, modeling, and aftermarket solutions for both the light and medium duty segments, as well as new advances from the heavy-duty and aerospace industries.

Industry pioneers will address the latest noise and vibration challenges, requirements, and strategies needed to meet those challenges.

Why you should attend:

This is your chance to make critical connections that will enhance your knowledge and improve your job performance. At NVC, you will network with the entire supply chain community – from OEMs and tier suppliers through part manufacturers, material developers and researchers.
