Maker Fest 2018

We invite you to apply for Maker Fest in Ahmedabad!! Following in the footsteps of Maker Faire across America, Europe, and Japan, among others, Maker Fest is an all-ages showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. It is a celebration of the maker spirit and a place where people like YOU can meet like minded A-Class innovators.

Show off your creative projects on your booths, share your accomplishments with an appreciative audience. There will be a stage for demonstrations, and there will be workshops throughout the day for attendees to make things of their own.

Makers range from artisans to jugaad auto-mechanics to scientists to robotics experts to farmers—we accept makers of all age groups and backgrounds, giving you the opportunity to share your inventions and collaborate with others. By participating in Maker Fest, you will join a growing community of top innovators from Gujarat and the rest of India. In addition to meeting brilliant makers, there’s a potential for international exposure and networking.
