We’re delighted to announce that the 2018 User Group Meeting will be held 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 some of the exotic materials and technologies they use for their projects.

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 $199.00. To help minimise costs, we had made arrangements with The Embassy Suites Convention Center to offer you a discounted accommodation rate.

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




We strongly advise anybody that is interested in attending this year's user group to register their place ASAP to avoid disappointment. The event has sold out every year we have held it which unfortunately resulted in a number of people missing out on the experience.

Testimonials from Vectricians that attended past User Group Meetings...

"You guys are amazing! I left the second day motivated, educated, and ready to try new things. The fact that you recorded each session ahead of time and took even more time to explain the concepts was amazing. I started reviewing the videos as soon as I got home Sunday. By Sunday night I had carved a 3d figure using the clipart and the skill steps I'd learned. Thanks for the energy and investment in time you place on making this one of the best user community events I've ever attended."

"Again, your excitement and passion were hugely motivating and helped really connect me with the skill steps you were teaching." Chris Cappelli

"The humor and camaraderie of the Vectric team made the meeting pleasant as well as informative. Thanks." John Strauss

"I'd go every year if it is anywhere near me. Believe me when I say there are few companies where I look forward to and enjoy meeting the CEO and his team. You'll are 110% by me and in this day and age, its rare and a treat." Gary Roberts

"Thank you for putting on the event. Clearly a lot of hard work, practice and energy was put in by Vectric, all of you should be proud of your accomplishments. Thank you." Ian Martin
