We, the Organizing Committee of Shenzhen Maker Week, would like to invite you as an honorable guest to attend Shenzhen Maker Week (SZMW), and exhibit at Interactive Maker Exhibit which is scheduled from June 18 to 22 in Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, China.
Hosted by Shenzhen Municipal People’s Government, supported by Shenzhen Science and Technology Innovation Committee, organized by Shenzhen Industrial Design Profession Association (SIDA), and cooperated with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Interactive Maker Exhibit gathers some works from international Fab Labs or maker teams, as well as the world’s top 10 maker teams and institutions, building a high-quality platform for makers and Fablabers to spread their spirit of “Maker, Learn & Share”. Global Maker gurus are expected to gather in Shenzhen, attracting over one million visitors.
Themed on “Make with Shenzhen”, 2015 Shenzhen Maker Week shares, showcases, networks and inspires maker culture, innovation and entrepreneurship by various forms of exhibitions, forums, workshops etc.. Shenzhen Maker Week boasts a layout of “1+N” throughout the city, i.e., 1 main venue in Civic Center, and several sub-venues in Nanshan, Futian, Qianhai, Luohu and so on, focusing on hot areas of open hardware, wearable devices, robotics, 3D printing, Sustainability & Green Tech. Hardware engineers, programmers, designers, software and hardware enthusiasts and makers from around the world are gathered to share and experience at the site.
As the front of China’s hi-tech industries, Shenzhen boasts the world’s largest electronics distribution center and is credited as “Paradise for Makers” by the industry. In Jan 2015, Premiere Li Keqiang hosted the executive meeting of the State Council and proposed the strategy of “public entrepreneurship” and “innovation by all”. During the China Hi-tech Fair 2014, Mr. Xu Qin, Mayor of Shenzhen, proposed to host Maker Week in Shenzhen on June 18 every year and attend in person to give address, in the purpose of inspiring “innovation by all” and “grassroots entrepreneurship”. The 2015 Shenzhen Maker Week aims to integrate the resources of global makers and innovation, strengthen the communication and cooperation between Chinese and foreign makers, build an open and integrated innovative ecosystem based on the Internet, manufacturing and industrial design, and eventually build Shenzhen as “City of Makers”.
