Maker Faire Shenzhen 2019
To the Heart of Community, to the Cluster of Industry
In 2012, we introduced Maker Faire to China, holding it for the first time in Shenzhen. Here is a summary of our journey since then:
2012: A pioneer of China’s maker culture, Chaihuo Makerspace organised the first Maker Faire Shenzhen to pioneer and build a platform to connect China and global technology, promoting exchanges between the two;
2015-2018: We hosted the Maker Faire Shenzhen as a major sector of Shenzhen Maker Week Conference/National Mass Entrepreneurship and Innovation Week, attracting nearly 1,000 Maker teams from 47 countries around the world to showcase and exchange, continuing to expand the influence of the event;
2019: Maker Faire Shenzhen 2019 focused on creating a platform for the transformation of scientific and technological achievements and industrial innovation.
