We are continuing to accept proposals on a space available basis to exhibit at MakerX.

We are seeking exhibitors who are: makers, inventors, tinkerers, artists, teachers, clubs, meetups, hobbyists, professionals, makerspaces, schools, universities, start-ups, and corporations who want to share their knowledge of the world of digital design and digital fabrication.

The list of what we would like to see at MakerX is equally long and open ended. It certainly includes robotics of all sorts, drones, 3D printing and other digital prototyping and production technologies, electronic technology of all vintages, digital art and music, engineering innovations, game development, industrial design, AR/VR/mixed reality, digital biohacking, high-tech manufacturing, and technologies of citizen science.

In addition to this core we invite exhibits that round out a stimulating and fun event and remind us where our digital age has come from and where it may go: for example cosplay of the sci-fi and steampunk variety, production crafts like blacksmithing, steam engines, DIY vehicles and art cars.

We use the term “exhibit” broadly, including a table with demonstrations, a custom installation, a brief workshop, a competition, a vehicle, or a performance. Please check out the pictures and floorplans in the Venue section to visualize how you can best present your work at MakerX.

Each proposed exhibit will be evaluated by the planning committee for its relevance to the theme, balance with other proposals, feasibility, and above all for its potential to teach visitors something new.

Accepted exhibitors will be provided at least two tickets to the event, a table and two chairs (if they need them). We will work with exhibitors that have different space needs. Accepted exhibitors will be expected to promote attending MakerX to their networks leading up to the event, be set up and ready to share with the public at starting time on April 21, remain until the end of the event, and completely clean up their space before they leave. The hours for MakerX are 10am to 5pm, with setup and breakdown immediately before and after.

We have finished our first round of acceptances and are continuing to accept exhibitor proposals only until we run out of space. if you want to be part of MakerX please submit your proposal as soon as possible. Accepted exhibitors will confirm their participation by paying a non-refundable $15 fee (which helps cover our costs) and providing us any additional information we request in order to successfully promote and plan the event.
