Categories of Makers
- Makers/Exhibitors are individuals or groups who are demonstrating a skill or craft, showing a finished piece of work and explaining it, and/or teaching a skill or leading a hands-on activity. You are sharing things you make but not selling them. You will get a 10×10’ space, one 8’ table, two chairs and standard electric upon request.
- Commercial Makers (Vendors) are people who wish to sell what they make themselves, in addition to demonstrating their making process at their booth. The cost for participating is $50 and includes a 10′ x 10′ space, one 8′ table, two chairs and standard electric upon request. Please note, startup companies, corporate entities, and established companies do not qualify as Commercial Makers. Businesses should see the “Sponsor” section below.
- Sponsors Several sponsorship options are available to small and large companies. Read about them here. We encourage all sponsors who have a booth to provide a hands-on/learning activity that helps the public understand more about your products or services. We also encourage you to send designers or engineers to represent your booth. Our curious audience wants to talk to the minds behind the making at your company.
