Makerstown 2018 is the unique one-day experience that shakes up Brussels by showcasing the town of the future and what needs to be done in terms of policy, private investment and education to ensure this can become a reality. If you are passionate about technology, virtual reality or augmented reality, then you should not miss a chance to visit this inspiring free event.
What will the town of the future look like?
2.000 makers, start-ups, business leaders and top EU policy-makers will try to answer this question in panels, along with school children and their teachers who will undertake a practical approach at workshops. After two successful editions, Makerstown is back bigger, better and more daring for a unique one-day fair. In partnership with Google, LEGO Education, Martens Center, TCS, MSD and Burson-Marsteller, the event will showcase how technology will reshape our daily life in the coming years, from houses, schools and hospitals, to energy and transport industries.
From 3D printing to robotics, from wearable technology to new Internet of Things, the makers are the innovators that fit perfectly with European manufacturing legacy.
Different thematic areas will showcase the makers, startups and inventors’ most recent and innovative projects to the public. Open, fresh and outspoken panel discussions will take place, putting together start uppers of the Makerʼs Movement, business leaders and European policy makers.
