What these basically are is to explain and demonstrate the features of Vectric software and introduce the next upgraded version and what it'll do. This is some powerful stuff in the right hands. I probably don't use Aspire 3-5% of it's capabilities, probably less.
Plus, they are now having different CNC, laser, and related vendors coming in now, too with there latest offerings. You get to meet the people that design and make the program, pick their brains, and get involved. People bring in different projects for display that they've made. Some of them are amazing. Todd Bailey from Design and Make is there too.

Faces are put to names and many friendships have been formed at these events.
