Maker Faire program: final calendar available!October 1, 2013


The Maker Faire is an explosion of ideas, energy, creativity, and fun. It’s an event for the general public, showcasing all kinds of makers – people who have the vision, skills and courage to transform the opportunities created by technology into objects, machines, and physical things.

The Maker Faire is a great festival of products and innovation, but also a place where you can meet and network with other makers – enthusiasts, experts and start-ups –, and have the chance to see and hear the gurus in the field of innovations, who will share their thoughts and their projects through workshops and exhibitions.
