Maker Faire Rome’s Opening Conference’s free registration is open. Check it out on Eventbrite.

The ticket you’ve got  from eventbrite in order to attend to the Maker Faire Rome “Opening Conference” does not allow  the access to the exhibition area of the Maker Faire. If you are interested in visiting the Fair, the box office in Viale Regina Elena 334  will be at your disposal on Friday 16th from 10.30 to 11.30  and you will be able to buy your ticket or you pass. If you have already bought a ticket for the Faire, we suggest to go anyway to the box office – before attending the conference – and  present your ticket to validate the title and then go to The Opening Conference ( entrance is in Viale dell’Università, 36,  venue is  Aula Magna ).  By doing so , once the Opening Conference is over, you can directly go to enjoy the Fair. Can’t wait to meet you !
