Virtual exhibitor area – what awaits you as a Maker!

Are you also sad because now for the second time no Maker Faire can take place? Then you thought wrong! We will meet digitally this year! On 18 June it starts, mark the date in your calendar.

Become an exhibitor and get great entertainment and great knowledge right in your workshop. If you’re wondering, “A digital Maker Faire, how is that going to work?” you’d better prick up your ears, because the Maker Faire team has come up with something great for you:

The digital format will run via the event tool vystem and will be quite easy to use. Everyone will be able to find their way around without any prior introduction, so don’t be shy when clicking through! The four areas into which the show is divided are an entertainment show, a knowledge hub, the presentations, the topic tables and, of course, the exhibitor area.

By the way, a nice side effect of the Digital Edition is that exhibitors can also take a look around the trade fair while looking after their booth, which experience has shown to be lacking “in real life” 😉 But how does it work with the virtual exhibitor area anyway?

Every Maker who wants to participate in the Maker Faire Hannover 2021 can send us a short application via this form. Since space at the show is limited, the Maker Faire team will decide which exhibitors will get a virtual booth. This booth can be designed by the exhibitors themselves within less than 30 minutes with a video, photos, descriptions of the project, links to their own website and further information material. For more in-depth discussions and networking among themselves, event participants can then contact the Makers in 1:1 video calls via the exhibitor booth and exchange ideas with them.

The event will be rounded off with a subsequent get together with all exhibitors (surprise package included) and a real Maker Faire feeling will be created!

Your booth can then look something like this:

Of course, you can also enjoy the knowledge hub and the entertainment show in parallel. Beyond the exhibitor booth, as a Maker you can participate in topic tables where you can share your expertise and exchange ideas with others on specific topics.

So it’s network, inspire and finally see Makers again! Great ideas and inspiration for tinkering at home are just as much at the start as great entertainment, providing a vacation from the one-sided daily grind.

If you feel like showing your project or want to get more information, please visit the Maker Faire Hannover website. If you have further questions, feel free to send us an email ( or give us a call: But be quick – the Call for Makers is only open until April 30!
