2020 Small Powertrain and Energy Systems Technology Conference Canceled

Due to concerns around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SAE International has made the responsible decision to cancel the 2020 Small Powertrain and Energy Systems Technology Conference (SETC), originally scheduled for November 10-12, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Before making this decision, we extensively monitored and evaluated health directives from governmental and international health authorities, government- and corporate-imposed travel restrictions, and social distancing directives. We remain firmly committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our participants, attendees, partners and staff, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused.

Should you have individual or specific questions, please visit or contact SAE.

Message to Attendees

SAE International has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event. That rate results from a negotiated overall package of event needs such as sleeping rooms, meeting room space and other requirements. Contracts with the venue include a provision to reduce event costs if SAE meets or exceeds its minimum sleeping room block guarantee. Conversely, event costs will increase if SAE falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help SAE keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and through the reservation process created by SAE. Reserving elsewhere means you are booking outside the contracted room block, jeopardizing SAE's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum. SAE appreciates your support and understanding of this important issue.

Alert: Room Reservations

SAE International and our housing partners do not solicit hotel room reservations via telephone, email, or fax. Any claims by any company stating otherwise are not true. Please be sure you are booking directly through the links on this page or directly with a specific property.
