This update confirms that we’ve started the process of vetting Maker applications. If you’ve submitted one via our web form, you will be hearing from us via email in the next few days. We’ll also be doing some profiling of makers on the blog and other parts of the website.
If you haven’t submitted a Maker application yet, there’s still time but we’d encourage you to do so quickly. This will give you much more option in terms of the available ways in which you can be involved, and will help us a lot with planning and logistics.
Remember that as a maker with scheduled involvement in the event, you don’t need to book an attendee ticket: your involvement gives you entry to Maker Faire. So, if you’re a maker currently wait listed for an attendee ticket, please consider submitting a Maker proposal and be involved in the event directly. There are many ways that you can be involved, including:
- having an exhibitors booth
- running a workshop or activity
- giving a prepared talk, demonstration or performance
- hosting a discussion group
This gives you the ability to commit to as little as say a 5 minute lightning talk, through to manning your own exhibitors booth for the day.
So, while we still have spaces left, we encourage you to submit a Maker application form, as soon as possible.
