Maker Type

Makers exhibiting at Maker Faire North Carolina generally fall into one of three broad categories: individuals, groups and commercial vendors.

Individuals - a single Maker with one or more projects OR a team of Makers working jointly on a single project.

Groups - Hackerspaces, Maker Guilds, and clubs with numerous people each doing different things.

Commercial - established for-profit enterprises that wish to exhibit and / or sell a product(s). (Note: Maker Faire: NC is NOT a trade or vendor show. Commercial applicants must be an excellent fit before they will be considered. Experience has shown that this is for mutual benefit.) *Sidekick sponsorship or higher is required; see Sponsor the Event for more details.
