We've received a tremendous response to our call for Makers that want to exhibit this year. We're really excited about everything that's come in for Maker Faire: NC -- and can't wait to start sharing it with you!
First, though, we want to make sure that we give ONE FINAL CALL for Makers that want to exhibit. Final decisions on ALL applications will occur by May 5th with all outstanding notices to applicants going out by the end of that weekend. We *have* to close it out so that we have six weeks to work with our accepted applicants to help them create a great experience for our attendees, plan final space layout, schedule teaching sessions, etc., etc., etc...
So here it is: LAST CALL! If you are bursting at the seams with AWESOME, get your application in NOW! If you already have, but haven't heard from us, you will. *Every* application will get an reply whether accepted or not. Just remember that we'll be favoring applicants that can engage interactively with attendees, and exhibitions that sit at the intersection of creativity and innovation are the most likely to win acceptance. If you already have an application pending, but have an idea of how you can add a bit more to really engage attendees, please write me (Kevin, your Maker Coordinator) at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll revise your application accordingly.
That's it for now! Let's get those final applications! Apply here: http://makerfairenc.com/2012-exhibitor-application/
