Support Local Innovation: Become a Sponsor!

Why become a sponsor of the Western New York Maker Faire?  Maker Faires sparks and celebrates creativity, invention, and resourcefulness in our community since 2013!  It offers attendees a glimpse to see what is possible!  It is a powerful community experience to offer Makers an opportunity to share their passion projects with an audience and get direct feedback.   For many Makers, there is no other venue available to share with others their ideas, inventions, and creativity.  The Maker Faire is a great way to connect with thousands of individuals who are inspired by local creativity and innovation. Sponsors have the opportunity to connect with our onsite and social networking audiences and bring these individuals back to their businesses.  It is through your generous support that we can expand and promote the Western New York Regional Maker Faire, offer free tables to aspiring inventors, offer free hands-on workshops, attract excellent speakers, and help keep our ticket prices free so that the entire WNY community can actively participate.  Without sponsors, none of this would be possible.

The Western New York Regional Maker Faire draws a unique audience that is very relevant to high-tech corporations, financial institutions, software, engineering, design and architecture companies, arts and graphics organizations, universities, start-up companies and brands looking to connect with tomorrow’s themes and with leading makers and influencers. Position your company or organization as a leader and supporter of the Maker Movement and WNY’s makers to celebrate creativity, diversity, innovation, technology and invention. Share your message and reach the highly educated and motivated participants, social influencers and visitors, all coming to connect to the region’s creative spirit. This is the perfect opportunity to put your name and your activities in front of a large and exciting audience of influencers; talented designers, engineers, inventors, innovators, students and makers of tomorrow.
