We are so pleased to announce the call for Makers for the 5th year for Maker Faire Singapore. Growing from humble beginnings in 2012, we saw Singapore’s first fully featured Faire in 2015, with over 550 makers displaying more than 200 exhibits, over 60 workshops, four special forums, and several talks and presentations.

For the 2016 Maker Faire Singapore, we hope to work more closely with the Makers, and make the Faire a fantastic community event, bringing the Maker Community even closer and the maker mindset more prevalent in Singapore. We are also glad that this year, we have a wonderful new venue for the Faire at the Singapore University of Technology and Design. The closing date for Maker registrations is 30th April 2016.

This year Maker Faire Singapore 2016 will be held on 25th and 26th June 2016 at The Singapore University of Technology and Design, 8 Somapah Road, S(487372), opposite EXPO Max Pavilion.
