New England Makers Summit 2019 – NEMS2019

The Maker Movement empowers people, businesses and communities across the U.S. and around the globe.

New England Maker Summit 2019 brings together experts in city planning, Maker Movement industry leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, manufacturers and curious minds to explore “The Impact of Innovation & Making on Urban America.”
