Getting Together! Glowforge 3-day event in California (not a sponsored event)

We are getting together in person! March 3-7. If you’re like me you have experienced what a generous and helpful community you get with your Glowforge online groups but nothing beats a true dialogue and conversation that organically goes back and forth. What started out as an idea and a quick post on FB groups has turned into a full fledged conference of sorts. Great presenters from across the US, freebies, painting workshops, an experts panel… its going to be awesome! I would love for you to join us. Disclaimer: We wanted to make this a totally free event but there are some costs to put it on so it is $20 per day you attend. Yea! LOTS of details on the FB event page.


So excited, this event is going to be so much fun! Looking forward to soaking in all kinds of good knowledge and meeting like minded people. Hope to see you there :grin:


I’ll be there talking about Inkscape with a Q&A session where you can ask all of those questions you’ve been wondering about.


I am attending this event and can not wait to dive in to all thing good with the Glowforge.


Have you considered streaming it?


Yes but I don’t think it’s feasible. We are all volunteering our time to put this on and no one has volunteered to manage that. Truthfully, the biggest value of this is the conversations that will happen outside of the presentations. Conversation moves you forward SO much faster than one way communication. With that said, I can see if anyone is a good “live streamer” and wants to volunteer to do that. smiley:


Ohh. I’m from MA, but will be in CA that week. We’ll be in LA by then (we leave Anaheim that morning) and I’m not sure I can ditch my family to head back, but I’ll see if I can figure it out for the first night. Looks like fun… kudos to you - event planning around something like this is a lot of work!


Christy, I hope you can, that would be great. Also we have a pretty great hotel rate right across the street from Disneyland. Take a look at the event page for more info. I’m happy to help any way I can. :smiley:

Hope it goes well. Flights and car alone would be close to $1000 for me, otherwise I’d love to be there.

In my former industry, the most valuable time was socializing outside of “training”…


There are 4 airports that are within an hour or less. Check around - SNA, LGB, ONT and LAX. You won’t need a car. There is a TON to do within walking distance of the hotel. I don’t know where you’re coming from but when I’ve looked from a lot of other east coast locations tickets have been under $300. You can do it! :smiley:

Interesting. Only a couple miles from my house. I may stop by. Thanks for sharing.
