ESPRIT World is our most popular event of the year, and in 2020, we want you to head back to work feeling energized, inspired, and empowered by what you learn. Although we could write pages about why World 2020 is a great opportunity, we’ve managed to drill it down to a tidy list of our favorite reasons to register.
1. Classes, classes, classes
First things first. ESPRIT World is all about education. We believe that everyone who uses ESPRIT deserves to understand the full capabilities of our software, so we don’t scrimp on classes. Instead of choosing a class track and hoping it covers what you want, you’ll build your own personalized curriculum from 59 unique class options.
In 2020, we’re adding a boatload of new classes to our lineup. Our most requested sessions include:
- In-Depth Exploration of the 5-Axis Composite Operation
- Advanced Programming Techniques for Swiss Machining
- Introduction to Wire EDM Programming
- Long Part Programming Techniques
- MillTurn Fundamentals in ESPRIT TNG
2. Put faces to a company
We may be a global organization, but we’re a Mom-and-Pop outfit at heart. This is especially evident at ESPRIT World, where our founders, Dan Frayssinet and Paul Ricard, mix and mingle with attendees for all five days. Talk shop with the leaders of DP and rub elbows with the people who make the product, getting exclusive access to the gears that keep us turning, so to speak. These face-to-face encounters help us, too. When we know more about you, we’re better equipped to make the best possible product.
3. An incredible value
We know that attending World is an investment—of your time and, often, your company’s money. To make sure you get a great return on those investments, we’ve worked hard to create a week packed with valuable opportunities. Consider the volume of training you’ll receive at World—more than 27 hours of classes spread over five days—and weigh it against the cost of taking the same number of classes “a la carte.” Now add the exclusive content we offer World attendees—like hands-on training directly from our engineers—plus the unique networking opportunities (see #3), and you’ve got yourself a darned good deal.
We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention the value of Las Vegas, too. We didn’t just choose our location for its fun reputation. We also picked Vegas for its accessibility. Its busy international airport offers nonstop service to many locations around the country. Lodging is cheaper too! Thanks to our negotiated rates with the Flamingo, World 2020 attendees will spend less on lodging than in years past.
4. Close to Vegas’s best
The Flamingo Las Vegas is one of the city’s most centrally located hotels. Although the World schedule is pretty full, you’ll have some downtime to explore the city. Attractions including the Fountains of Bellagio, the Eiffel Tower Experience, and the High Roller Observation wheel are all within walking distance of the venue, plus countless restaurants, bars, and entertainment options. Learn more about getting to and staying at World.
5. Your own 1-on-1 session
We saved the best for last. Your ESPRIT World registration includes a personal 1-on-1 session between you and an ESPRIT engineer. This private meeting is your time—to ask questions, tackle a specific problem, or simply learn more about the most powerful tool in your shop. However, these sessions are limited, and it’s important to register soon to secure your spot.
