On-Board Diagnostics Symposium (OBD)-Americas 2020 Transitioning to Virtual Event 

Due to concerns around the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, SAE International has made the difficult decision to transition the On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) Symposium-Americas to a virtual event and cancel the in-person event, originally scheduled for September 22-24, 2020, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Additional information for the virtual event will be made available in the coming weeks. 

Before making this decision, we extensively monitored and evaluated health directives from governmental and international health authorities, government- and corporate-imposed travel restrictions, and distancing and gathering directives and recommendations. We remain firmly committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our speakers, customers, partners and staff who are attending our events, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused.


Please see our Cancellation Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
