International representatives include Nadya Peek from MIT Media Lab, Sherry Lassiter from Fab Foundation, Indy Johar from Dark Matter, and Eric Pan from Seeed Studios among many others.

You'll find talks, demos, workshops, conferences and exhibits on 3D printing, electronics, robotics, Big Data, augmented reality, digital fabrication, internet, nanotechnology, biotechnology, drones, and more, all aimed at creators, hackers, makers, engineers, craftspeople, innovative scientists, or anyone at any age who's just curious and wants to create and is ready to get into the joy of making. The fair also includes the presentation of a sample of some scientific and advanced technological research projects that Catalan centres of excellence are currently working on.
