Hey there! Did you miss us?! Maker Faire:North Carolina was a huge success in 2010 with over fifty exhibitors and more than 2000 attendees. Not bad for a first-run! We're aiming much higher for Maker Faire:NC 2011 and I want you to be a part of it. The event will be on Saturday June 18, 2011 from 10AM to 5PM.
We're moving to the Gov. Kerr Scott Building on the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh which gives us more than 20,000 square feet to stretch our legs. In 2011 we're doubling the number of exhibitor slots available and we hope to better than double our attendance as well.
The best part of Maker Faire:NC is the awesome projects and exhibitions. I really want you to show off the cool robot you've been building, biological computer you've been growing, textiles you've been spinning (with or without biometric sensors!), and whatever else you've come up with. This link has all the information you need to register your project or business and stake your claim to a booth.
Our website has been comprehensively updated with goodies and information about MFNC 2011. Have a good look around for information about travel, venue, tickets, T-shirts, and more.
Finally, I want welcome our first 2011 sponsors: ShopBot and Hines Design Labs. Both companies are returning sponsors for 2011 and have really helped to make this event happen. Thanks! If you or your company is interested in a great marketing opportunity please have a look at our Sponsorship Opportunities.
I can't wait to see you in June!
