In conjunction with Idea Zone, MOSI is hosting its first Idea Faire. MOSI’s Idea Faire is a collaboration of makers, innovators, crafters, and D.I.Y creators with opportunities for hands-on learning and activities, workshops, make-and-take projects, and much more. We invite you to join us as an exhibitor for this one-of-a-kind event. As an exhibitor, you will have a chance to show off your creations and inspire guests to begin thinking outside the box. From gaming and robotics to baking and jewelry making, MOSI’s Idea Faire will have something for everyone. 

Come and show off your amazing Ideas as an exhibitor (free of cost) or be a vendor in our Idea Marketplace for a $50 vendor fee.

Please contact Sara Blanco at 813-987-6077 or or Kim Chavez at 813-987-6030 or for more information.
