The Power of Partnership: Maker Faire and Eventbrite
Maker Faire–part science fair, part crafts fair–is an all-ages event where “makers” gather to share their inventions, innovations, and learnings. The first Maker Faire in the Bay Area attracted 22,000 curious minds. Today, Maker Faire has expanded their event to New York as well and attracts more than 150,000 people annually.
While Maker Faire represents the cutting edge of technology and invention, until 2010 organizers were still tearing tickets at the door. Maker Faire wanted to bring a larger proportion of their registration process online and get their guests through the gates faster.

- Improve the attendee and exhibitor experience
- Manage a 300% increase in ticket sales
