Calling Makers: Digital Mission to Maker Faire Shenzhen Applications Open 17-23 June
We're delighted to announce the Digital Mission to Maker Faire Shenzhen is open for applications. Designed specifically to support the UK's maker movement, the trip features a UK pavilion designed by car-makers MINI as part of their Modern British Roadshow and a specially designed programme for makers.
Designed for the UK's leading Makers - creative technologists and entrepreneurs - the mission combines a high-profile presence at the Maker Faire with visits to local hardware accelerators, manufacturers and local experts. It's a unique chance for insight into the Chinese market covering manufacturing, distribution, market entry and more.
This mission builds on on 2014’s successful Digital Mission to China that saw companies like Triggertrap, Bare Conductive and Patchblocks develop distribution channels, gain insight into the Chinese market and sell some product to the 38,000 Maker Faire visitors.
This year's Maker Faire Shenzhen (19-21 June) includes 3 days of influential keynotes, workshops and 200 exhibitors as well as an expected 50,000 visitors. It's the focal point of Maker Week, a series of activities organised by Shenzhen's city government.
Speakers this year include Kevin Kelly (former Editor, WIRED), Adrian Bowyer (RepRap), Dale Dougherty (Founder, Make Magazine & Maker Faire), Stefania Druga (Singularity University, HacKIDemia), Massimo Banzi (Founder, Arduino), Julie Watai (Founder, Hardware Girls).
