The generel form would be -( 2^(n+2) ) -1 where n is the number of brackets

I would rewrite this as a sequence, where $$a_{1}=1+2, a_{2}=1+2(1+2)$$ and so on. finding the values of each term would give you 3,7,15,31... and this ends up being $$a_{n}=2^{n+1} -1$$. Therefore, the value you are finding for this problem would be $$2^{2018}-1$$. Hope this is correct and if it's not, tell me and I will revise it :D
