Maker Faire Zagreb 2020

After last year’s almost 11,000 visitors, we were looking forward to this year’s event, which we started preparing immediately after the 2019 event. To be on schedule, we defined a date for October 3 and 4, 2020. Unfortunately, the overall pandemic has complicated the whole situation, prevented the easy arrival of foreign exhibitors, and the risk of spreading the infection is extremely high with such a concentration of visitors and poses a risk. However, we wanted to turn this situation into an advantage, and we enabled the so-called virtual presence, through the registration of video content that will be available to all virtual visitors of the Maker Faire Zagreb 2020 event. We hope that this change will be well received and that this way will attract all those who could not be physically present.

We especially want to thank the American Embassy in Zagreb, which, despite all these challenges, recognized our efforts and activities and supported Maker Faire Zagreb 2020 with its significant funds. We hope to justify their trust in these challenging circumstances.

Our effort was also recognized by The Patent magazine, we signed a Memorandum of Cooperation, in order to cover us in the international media through their publications.

Like last year, Bug magazine is also our media partner at the national level, and we believe that it will follow the interesting projects submitted to this year’s Maker Faire Zagreb 2020 VP.

 

Maker Faire Zagreb 2019

Maker Faire Zagreb joined this year for the first time in this world event. It will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 12th and 13th, 2019 in the inspirational space of the Technical Museum of Nikola Tesla, and will host numerous domestic and foreign exhibitors from the field of science and technology, art, crafts and entrepreneurship. Through discussions, practical impressions and many workshops visitors will be able to familiarize themselves with a number of modern technological processes.

 

The Maker Faire

Maker Faire is a set of world events designed to connect creators to the public. It is the largest “show and present” family festival of innovation, creativity and perfection. Artistic participants provide an opportunity to show works that usually remain hidden in garages, workshops, studios or kitchen desks. The purpose of the event is to promote the “creators” of the movement and education of new creators among young people and the elderly. Every year, more than 190 such events in 38 countries, with more than 1.45 million people, participate all over the world.
