Sponsorship


Want to support the premier maker event in Ireland? Want to connect with creative, innovative people of all ages?  There are many ways to help make this non-profit, free-entry, all-ages event possible!

2014 DUBLIN MAKER SPONSORSHIP OPTIONS

Dublin Maker  will be held on July 26th, 2014 at Science Gallery, Trinity College. It is a free-to-attend, community-driven event. To make this great event happen, we are looking for financial support from companies, organisations and individuals, as well as in-kind support.

Dublin Maker takes the form of a “show and tell” experience where inventors/makers sourced through an open call, will have an opportunity to showcase their creations at individual booths in a carnival atmosphere. It will be a family friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds, coming from all over Ireland and beyond. Dublin Maker’s mission is to entertain, inform and connect the makers of Ireland, while inspiring the next generation of Ireland’s makers and inventors.

We need your support to make this happen!

Becoming a sponsor of Dublin Maker is a great way for your company or organization to connect with this exciting and growing community in an all-ages event.

With over 7,000 attendees, 50 maker booths, a forge and a rocket launch pad, it was a huge success. Last year we introduced a Fabrication Tent that showcased 12 fab makers, from 3D printing and scanning to laser and vinyl cutters. We also created a forum for makers so they could a give ten minute talk or performance, celebrating making in all its forms. We call it the Most Interesting Tent. There were talks and performances from MIDI Dancing Shoes (with a former Riverdance lead dancer), Making Things with Fire to Kitchen Sink Physics and Homebrewing in Ireland.

The 2014 festival will be bigger, better, and even more inspiring!

Why is Dublin Maker so great?

  • It’s a chance for us, as makers, to give back to the community through this event which will help inspire everyone to become a maker.
  • The festival will connect to people and projects within their local community and beyond.
  • The festival will help inspire and empower young people to learn more about and pursue careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
  • It’s a CSR opportunity like no other, now established as a yearly event, which will bring together over 40 exhibiting makers and workshop leaders, 50 volunteers, and 7,000+ attendees.
  • There is no other event like it! Where else would you get flame-thrower drum kits, exercise-powered Scalectrix, 14ft drums, Irish speaking robots, crochet, a forge, a rocket launch pad and period costume all in one place?

Sponsorship benefits will range from text mention and logo inclusion in written material, to having exhibit space at the event. Please see the attached levels for more information.
