Maker Faire Shenzhen started as a Mini Maker Faire in 2012 as the first in China, and became a feature Faire in 2014. The Faire consists of exhibitions, workshops, a maker forum, and performances by local and international makers. With the city’s vibrant hardware ecosystem as backdrop, Maker Faire Shenzhen features an impressive number of startup exhibitors and attracts global attendees who also use the event as an opportunity to explore the manufacturing supply chain in the Pearl River Delta. Maker Faire Shenzhen is organized by Chaihuo, Shenzhen’s first makerspace, and supported by Seeed, an open source hardware company that has been serving global makers since 2008. The next Maker Faire Shenzhen will be held in November, 2019.
