How will the town of the future look?  #MakersTown is the first event of its kind in Brussels bringing together Makers, business leaders and European policy-makers to showcase, share and succeed! The Makers are a new wave of entrepreneurs and Do-It-Yourself experts empowered by Web 3.0 tools, technology and crowdfunding. From 3D printing to robotics, from wearable technology to new ICT, from food to fashion, they are today’s Robert Bosch, Enzo Ferrari or Arthur Guinness.

Part fair, part conference, Makerstown will welcome and showcase more than 50 top European Makers and their innovative products which are changing the way we live! The event provides an opportunity to discuss and share opinions with business leaders and policy-makers in this field from around Europe.

Are you also interested in the Makers movement? MakersTown is set to be a great venue to discover the future of cities as well as the future of businesses in urban environments. As organizer explain: On the 20th June 2017, in Brussels, we will build the city of the future, showcasing how technology will reshape houses, hospitals, schools, vehicles, banks, buildings, factories, nutrition, energy, telecommunications and many other industries in the coming years.
