Call for Makers is an opportunity to exhibit for makers, tinkerers and inventors with a new project to share. At SoCal Maker Con, we see our local makers as mission critical to the Maker Movement as a whole. We encourage you to come and show the world your concept. Once your project application is accepted and approved, you will receive FREE admission to the SoCal Maker Convention and FREE use of a 6’ table to demo your project.

How to proceed:

To submit your project for consideration, simply fill out the form below and email it to info@socalmakercon.com. Upon receiving the project documentation, we will review it and get back to you with further instruction.

That’s it!

Please note that submission of a project does not guarantee a space; it must be approved by the exhibit director before space is formally awarded. Floor space is limited so please submit your project as soon as possible.

Call for Makers is limited only to individual makers and not available for companies or those selling their projects. If you have a company or would like to sell product, please visit our exhibitor and sponsor pages to review the wonderful opportunities available for exhibitors and sponsors.
