2018 User Group Meeting in Chicago - Book Your Place.

Postby Stephanie Downing » Wed Jan 10, 2018 9:59 am

We would like to thank everyone for their input into where we should host our next Vectric User Group Meeting. After careful consideration we have decided to host our event in Chicago at the Embassy Suites Hotel Downtown Chicago on Friday 12th & Saturday 13th October 2018.

We'll be packing both days full covering What's New in all our products along with projects and ideas to increase your knowledge and efficiency using the software. As well as the technical benefits, the meeting also gives like-minded CNC enthusiasts a great excuse to meet up and share knowledge as well as opportunity to bring along projects to show and discuss with other attendees.

As with previous meetings, the user group will take place over two days (Friday and Saturday) and will have a strong focus on our Aspire and VCarve software however a few of the sessions will also be relevant to Cut2D. We have a lot of new things happening in 2018, which will be showcased at this event!

Due to the great amount of positive feedback from the 2017 attendees we will once again be showcasing an exciting line up of guest speakers that will not only be showing you how they turned their passion into dollars but will also be showcasing how they created their projects in Vectric software.

As we sold out so fast in 2017, the 2018 event has a new limit of 300 places to give everyone a chance to attend a bigger and better User Group Meeting. The fee per person to attend is stil $199.00. To help minimise costs, we had made arrangements with The Embassy Suites Convention Centre to offer you a discounted accommodation rate.

To book your place and discounted accommodation please click on the link below:
http://www.vectric.com/company/events/2 ... icago.html

There are a number of alternative locations available within the area. Please contact online@vectric.com if you need any assistance/ advice.

Chicago's centralised location and abundance of local attractions mean you'll certainly have plenty to do if you're thinking about tagging on some vacation time. From shopaholics and sports enthusiasts to thrill seekers and foodies, there is something for everyone.

We can't wait to see you all there!

Thanks
Stephanie

I am amazed when I have good timing to have purchased recently and then registered over the weekend for the forum... I registered this morning for the event when I saw it on the home page... and I am hoping to be able to squeeze into my schedule. Very difficult to resist when I can drive and no miserable plane travel is involved.

fwiw, "If you have any problems with booking a place for the event or reserving a room at The Las Vegas Hotel, then please email online@vectric.com." I think this needs to be edited as it looks like the event is in a Hyatt...? At least it drives me nuts when I post info and there is a mistake.

I have stayed in that hotel when on business trips. That is an AWESOME place to stay.

Unfortunately, I cannot afford such a trip.

Some day, I will be able to attend.

Hopefully everyone will have a GREAT time.

I'm fairly new to the CNC router scene but I plan to attend. Convinced my wife to attend with me. The wonders of wine! I'm excited to get some new ideas and learn new techniques.

Hi Samarah,

Fantastic news! We're looking forward to meeting you at the event.

The User Group Meeting's are always fantastic for picking up tips and tricks as well as taking in brand new features. It's also really valuable getting to know your piers. The Vectric community has so much knowledge and are so welcoming, i'm sure you'll get a lot out of the event.
