Maker Faire Shenzhen 2018 is now calling for makers!
Welcome to join us at this year’s MFSZ in Nanshan District, Shenzhen China in October! We are scheduling Maker Faire Shenzhen for October 19-21, 2018, however we are still working out details with different partners and will make a final announcement very shortly.
In 2017, apart from the spread of maker culture, Maker Faire Shenzhen leaned towards a focus on Maker Pros. We had Maker Pros coming to show their cool projects and share their stories of combining tech and creativity, turning 0 to 1 (ideas to prototypes).
In 2018, we’ll have an emphasis on maker’s capabilities and how their expertise matches with social and industrial needs. While retaining the elements of fun, interactivity, education and family-friendly, we’ll have a focus on the aspect of how makers and their creativity/solutions can help solve social problems, improve the education of science & technology as well as co-create for the urban development. We will highlight makers/teams/startups who embrace the concept of “Innovation changes life”.
If you would like to present your creativity for the society, for education and for urban development, if you have solutions that apply innovative technologies into making our life for the better, welcome to join us at Maker Faire Shenzhen 2018! Click HERE to apply for a spot now!
