Online registration is now open for Esprit World 2018, which will take place June 11-15 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The event, which will be taking place in the Midwest for the first time in its 15-year history, is intended to bring together users of California-based DP Technology’s CAM software from around the world. The event will be a time for training, networking with peers in the industry and hearing about new technologies and the future of the software.

“We’re excited to bring Esprit World to Indianapolis and be closer to our customers from the Midwest and East Coast, who have often had to travel greater distances to attend our events in the past,” President Paul Ricard says. “As always, we have an outstanding class and speaker lineup this year, and we hope to welcome more attendees than ever before.”

Attendees will learn tips, tricks, trends and technologies at the event. Users of any skill level will learn about the CAM software with classes on topics including mill-turn and milling techniques, wire EDM, automated programming, postprocessors, and mold roughing and finishing. The event also offers a weeklong, immersive boot camp for beginners. 

Classroom training will be augmented with talks from speakers from across the industry, including members of the company’s executive team, machine tool and technology partners, and programmers and engineers. Attendees looking for extra assistance can sign up for one-on-one sessions with support engineers.

The event will also include a keynote speech given by Doug Woods, president of AMT—The Association for Manufacturing Technology.
