The Makers Syndicate 2024

Regular price $75.00

This event will take place on Sunday, September 15th, 2024 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

What makes The Makers Syndicate different? We specifically ask all the makers to only bring the products that they personally make. There will not be any production lines from We/Bestec/Reate/etc at this show. We want our attendees to know that all the items at the show were made by the hands of the makers behind the tables - not produced overseas.

Last year's show was very well received. We were limited to 20 vendors, due to the size of the venue, and we were still able to sell about 500 tickets. This year’s venue is much bigger, allowing us to have more vendors and attendees! We plan to have 50 vendors for the show this year! We sought out a very unique venue similar to the one we had last year. It’s an old window and door factory in the same area of Indianapolis. It has exposed wood beams, tons of windows, brick and outdoor patios. See the video link below for a walk through:
