MakerCon is the epicenter of the Maker Movement

MakerCon connects the individuals at the forefront of the Maker Movement and taps into the best thinking on how to make things and get them to market, from new technologies to manufacturing models to funding methods. MakerCon is a meeting place for passionate entrepreneurs who want to test the commercial waters for their prototypes; cultural and civic leaders driving Maker initiatives; and product developers inspired by the Maker Movement.

MakerCon is a professional conference by and for Makers

Inside MakerCon Sessions

What are the signals coming out of the Maker Movement that will shape the coming economy, local communities, education, government policy and initiatives? How is the Movement stimulating talent development, opportunity and agency? How is this Maker Movement distinct from the 20th century industrial model? These are some of the questions that MakerCon NY, a one-day event on September 24, will focus the conversation around. Don't miss it! A full day designed by Makers for Makers.
