  1. Announcements
  2. Presentation (live) - Maker Faire Pays - How I turned an exhibit at Maker Fair Orlando into nearly a Quarter million in revenue. David Woods PE
  3. Networking
  4. Adjourn

Maker Faire Orlando has been here for over 10 years.  It is a venue where makers of all sorts exhibit their creations and share the joy of creating with over 20,000 visitors.  Those visitors are generally eclectic, affluent, educated professionals with their families.  It is hard to ask for a better demographic to review an invention.  Exhibiting at the Faire is free to those who exhibit with the intent to inform, entertain, and engage the visitors in the making process.

In the inventing world it is known that, You can't sell it if you don't show it."  Maker Faire is an excellent place to show your hard work and get valid informed feedback on it.  There is no telling who will be looking at your stuff.  David will be sharing how he answered the call by a visitor to the fair and leveraged that into nearly a quarter million dollars of development money for his more efficient swim fins.

 In his talk you will learn how to exhibit at Maker Faire, what ICCF will do to help you, and how he monetized his contact. 
David Woods PE

David is a civil engineer with extensive experience with all sports involving water and air.  After a fulfilling career designing industrial parks he turned his focus on one of his faviorite pastimes, SCUBA diving.  Realizing swim fins have never been designed from the viewpoint of fluid dynamics he dove in.  His research and development has resulted in fins that are 20 to 40% more efficient than what is in use today.
