This year, Maker Faire Shenzhen 2019 will be focusing on the theme “To the Heart of Community, To the Cluster of Industry”, covering a full chain of content for technological innovations such as the Maker Summit Forum, Maker Booths (includes highlights and performances), as well as Innovation workshops. The event will showcase innovative applications of the world’s top-tiered technologies, sharing projects and programs from around the world that promote technological advancement and the upgrading of traditional industries. By creating a platform for both the global maker community and industry leaders, we hope to connect these two communities to allow them to come up with innovative solutions which will solve the pressing challenges of today.
See you at Maker Faire Shenzhen 2019, which will be held at Vanke Design Commune, Nanshan District, Shenzhen on 9-10 November 2019.
1. Maker Summit Forum
A gathering of industry leaders to explore how technology can help us achieve sustainable development
Sustainable Development is now one of the mainstream values of our world today. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core has been adopted by all UN members since 2015, while individuals, organizations, and corporations have also been exploring paths for sustainable development in their respective scopes. This year, the Maker Summit Forum will focus on sustainability in different aspects related to the maker community. We will be inviting speakers from different sectors, cultures, and professional backgrounds to share their projects, stories and insights in sustainable development. Through this forum, we hope to promote a broader understanding of sustainable development and lead to collective actions eventually.

2. Maker Booths
Showcasing innovative applications in the community and industry
The Exhibition (includes various highlights and performances) is one of the main highlights of Maker Faire Shenzhen. Since its inception in 2012, it has attracted more than 1,500 innovative individuals, teams and corporate exhibitors from around 30 countries and regions around the world. This year, we have a stunning total of 108 booths, with exhibitors from Japan, India, the United States, Nepal, Canada, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
For this year’s 108 booths, we have categorised the different projects into their target industries, as well as which of the 17 sustainable development goals they aim to solve. Through the breakdown of the projects into different categories, we hope that it will be easier for visitors to look for the projects and programs that they are interested in.
Among the various exhibitors, individual exhibitors have a tiny advantage. But overall, the number of individual, team and corporate exhibitors are still relatively equal.
The different projects, programs and products that will be showcased in the exhibition can work/are working with sectors/industries such as education, entertainment, toys, manufacturing, consumer electronics/household appliances, daily life and real estate etc.
In 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was unanimously adopted by all UN member states and confirmed the adoption of 17 sustainable development goals. With the development of science and technology, a growing number of individuals, enterprises and organisations are now exploring ways to use technology to achieve the sustainable development goals. For more information on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/
Exhibition of projects, programs and products, and their target SDGs. Most of the exhibitors have chosen No. 9, 4, 11, 17 and 8.
An immersive hands-on experience for innovative technologies
The workshop provides a platform for participants to have first-hand experience in creating technology. During the event, we will work with multiple exhibitors to set up a variety of themed workshops to let visitors experience the fun of making something with their own hands, creating an immersive technological innovation experience where they can understand the different possibilities of innovative technologies.
