Seven reasons to participate in Maker Faire Hannover

The Maker Faire Hannover will take place on August 2023. Preparations are in full swing, the first highlights have already been booked and tickets are being bought in abundance.

There is plenty of room on around 7,500 square meters of exhibition space. Which Maker would like to exhibit? We are looking for creative projects, innovative impulses and exciting self-builds. Until the beginning of June, Makers are invited to register with their ideas and projects via the Call-for-Makers form.

Those who don’t want to exhibit but love to talk can share their vision with visitors and become a speaker! There will be slots available in the speaking program in the entertainment show on the outdoor stage. Workshops are also in high demand and can be submitted separately.

But what are the benefits of participating as a Maker at Maker Faire Hannover? We have collected and listed some reasons. Have fun reading:

  1. Use a platform to show the project to many people
    A Maker Faire represents a unique platform that does not exist elsewhere. Makers can take advantage of a fair space for free, no matter if they are total beginners or professionals. In the past, Maker Faire Hannover has attracted over 17,500 visitors in one weekend. Every exhibitor is offered the opportunity to show their own idea to many visitors in a relaxed atmosphere at an extremely versatile trade fair event.
  2. Press hype before, during and after Maker Faire – especially at MAKE
    Maker Faire is organized by the German-language Make magazine. This is part of the Heise Group and thus has an enormous advertising platform. In addition, the Maker Faire is a popular venue for the press due to its versatile creativity. Media attention in Make and other press portals is almost guaranteed.
  3. Learn from other makers and benefit from their different skills
    Where else can you meet so many different people with such diverse skills? The booth neighbor on the left is a professional in 3D printing/scanning, the neighbor on the right has years of experience in building robots, and the maker at the booth across the street loves to program computer games, while the exhibitor at the booth next to her is a professional in using embroidery machines. Here, the opportunity is offered to get in touch with other makers from other subject areas in the simplest way and to learn from each other. In this way, one’s own knowledge can be enriched and at the same time passed on. In addition, exciting new projects and cooperations can arise.
  4. Time for new friendships: Finally personal exchange with other makers again
    Maybe some of you felt a bit lonely during the lockdowns and longed for the exchange with like-minded people. Now this is finally possible again. At a Maker Faire, it can be guaranteed that an open exchange will take place around one’s own interests. New acquaintances can be made at the latest at the traditional get-together of all Makers and not infrequently these lead to a long-standing friendship, which is revived at every Maker Faire.
  5. Inspire others with your own project to become a Maker, too.
    Isn’t it great when you can inspire others with your own enthusiasm? At such an emotional event as the Maker Faire, enthusiasm bubbles up in almost every corner. Visitors are only too happy to be infected by this and are even happier when Makers encourage them with their unique projects to finally discover DIY for themselves.
  6. Sharing knowledge and making the world a little better
    With a 3D printer, it’s easy to print replacement parts for equipment that would otherwise have to be disposed of. Through upcycling, things that would not survive the circular economy are put to further use. Innovative projects around sustainability protect the environment and conserve resources. The instinctive thirst for knowledge of a Maker inspires to first think about functionality and benefit before buying a new product. As a Maker, you do your part to make the world a little bit better with your projects, but also with the knowledge that is shared with visitors at the Maker Faire.
  7. Have fun at one of the biggest Maker Faires worldwide
    If the above reasons are still not enough arguments to attend Maker Faire Hannover: Fun is guaranteed. Big, fire-breathing highlights, multicultural exchange, lots of wonderful creative people and a festival that can hardly be surpassed in individuality.

So don’t wait any longer, become part of the Maker Faire! Register here.

Merry Christmas! We are looking forward to our Maker Faires next year!

Dear Community,

Once again, the year is almost over. Time to relax a bit and come to rest.

Unfortunately, we were not able to have a big Maker Faire as usual this year, but we had great virtual meetings with you at our Maker Faire Hannover – Digital Edition and the Make Entertainment Show! So we are even more excited about the plans for the upcoming year. We have a lot of new ideas and can’t wait to see you again at our Maker Faires AND virtually.

  • We will start the year digitally with the Maker Faire Germany – Digital Edition. It is already on 12 February. Look forward to 20 selected Makers and partners presenting their projects at virtual booths. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with the Makers, network and ask questions. An entertainment show of the very best with a varied live program completes the five-hour event. Do you want your project to be there? Click here to apply.
  • From Berlin to the South … We are leaving the capital and moving our second big Maker Faire to Southern Germany. This makes Maker Faire Baden-Württemberg the second major flagship event in Germany for the Maker community, alongside Maker Faire Hannover. Join us, travel to the heart of Baden-Württemberg and marvel at the Maker scene of (southern) Germany. The event takes place on June 25 & 26. Click here for the Call for Makers.
  • Of course, Germany’s largest Maker Faire in Hannover is not to be missed. It will take place at the Hannover Congress Centrum on September 10 & 11. The Call for Makers is open and we are looking forward to your applications.For the time between the years we recommend our online platform Make Projects. Here you can present and develop your projects, but most of all connect with other makers. Share your ideas and stories with the community on Make Projects and bring joy and inspiration to others! By the way, from now on we will present the project of the month in our newsletter. To the platform.

We wish you all a merry Christmas season with your loved ones. Stay healthy and have a positive start into the new year!

Your Maker Faire Crew


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!

Maker Media wishes you a happy Easter!

The Maker Media GmbH wishes everyone a happy Easter. Times are special at the moment and nothing is the same as usual – even large family celebrations unfortunately fall flat at the moment due to the corona crisis.

But don’t let it get you down and still have a good time – as good as it gets.

Everything can – nothing must! The important thing is that you are well.

And for those whose thirst for action can never be great enough: register as a Maker for the Maker Faire Hannover by 5 July. On September 12th and 13th we will give you the opportunity to present your projects you are currently building to others for free – so don’t hesitate for long and register quickly. To the Call for Makers

To increase the anticipation you can also get tickets at 30% discount. You will receive the tickets by e-mail and can send them quickly and easily as a little Easter greeting to your loved ones.
