2018 US User Group Meeting - Have your say

Postby Stephanie Downing » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:33 am

Hi Everyone,

After an amazing 2017 User Group Meeting, all of the Vectric staff are back at head quarters feeling inspired and motivated. :D

We're already starting to think about next years UGM and how we'll make it even better, that's where you come in!

We would love to hear your thoughts on previous events and your ideas for next year.

Do you have an opinion on location? training content? our partner speakers? or even the food? Let me know in the comments below :)

Phoenix, AZ. Hot in the summer but great during the winter.

I would recommend a place that promotes CnC inspiration, and allows people to relax in the local area. Valdez Alaska has some of the most picturesque views, natural wild life, world class fishing, glacier trips, and can support a large influx of people for conferences.

I'm with Randall on the San Francisco Bay Area.

If you scheduled the meeting close to the 2018 Maker Faire event it would be cheaper on the Vectric expense accounts since you will already be there. Also many of your CNC machine vendors will already be there too.

The current strength of the USAn vs Canadian dollar might make that desirable. In that vein Toronto, Vancouver, Quebec City, Halifax, etc. might also be desirable.

I’ll throw in Denver metro area, could be Estes Park, Fort Collins, Denver, or Colorado Springs area.

October is typically void of hail storms and tornadoes and if it snows that early in the season it is usually only on the ground for a day.

Mountains are nearby for those seeking inspiration, wildlife, and other activities.

We have a lot of micro breweries And the GABF (Great American Beer Festival) is here in October as well.
