Eindhoven’s Maker Faire will move to the Klokgebouw this year after it outgrew its current location at the VDMA.
The annual faire is for ‘makers’ of all kinds, such as inventors and designers, to present themselves and their products to the public – an approach that has gained popularity in the last three years.
The organisation is looking to expand significantly with a 3-day program and 200 stands, and says its goal of 10,000 visitors is feasible. Similar events in France and Germany are expected to attract a comparable crowd.
September’s edition of the Maker Faire at the Klokgebouw will include more variety in the technical workshops offered to children, from art installations to high tech.
The Maker Faire is mostly funded by contributions from companies in the area, and will soon see in an increase in revenue from growing visitor numbers.
