Asmbly Maker Markets are a bit different from your typical vendor market in that booths will be set up within existing shop areas at Asmbly, each having its own unique features, sizes, and benefits. Please read through the booth details in each shop area and mark down your preferences in your vendor application. We’ll do our best to accommodate booth requests and work with vendors to set them up in areas that will work well for them!
All booths will have electricity available, however, some may need extension cords run. Please indicate whether you will be using electricity so we can plan accordingly and run power in advance where necessary.
Many booths will include machines in them. We’d like to be able to highlight the equipment that is available at Asmbly but also want to ensure your items are the main spotlight. If you need help coming up with creative ideas to work with the machines in your booth, please reach out at email@example.com. We’re happy to help!
The map and booth details listed below are for the 2022 Asmbly Maker Market. There will be a few changes to the layout this year, but it will be similar overall. Check back for updates soon!
🟩 – Indicates vendor space
🖥️ – Computer and monitor available
We will have the door to Textiles open to encourage traffic into this shop area. However, more importantly, this is where we will be selling drinks, including beer and wine, which will seal the deal on getting good visibility for members vending in this shop area! There will be 4 booths available in this area. T1-3 will each have a sewing machine in their booths.
Much of the table space in this shop area is used for 3D printers, so we will only have 1 vendor in this shop area. The vendor in this shop area will have the large wall-mounted monitor available for use and is highly encouraged to use it!
The multipurpose room will accommodate several vendors in an inviting open format with the table layout shown below. All tables will be covered with table clothes.
These spots are likely to be in high demand and get great traffic. Booth set ups in this area will be highly unique in that they include the use of the laser as table space. Vendors are encouraged to use the lasers creatively in their booth set ups (e.g. have the laser open with products displayed on the laser bed, use magnets on the lasers, etc). However, vendors may NOT run the lasers during this event. Put differently, on the spot laser work is not authorized, however vendors are encouraged to presell custom work during the event.
Vendors in this area will each be able to use the computer corresponding to the laser and are highly encouraged to do so. Guests love seeing videos of the lasers in action and you creating your projects! If you don’t already have footage, consider taking some as you create products for this event.
Lastly, each vendor in this area will split a portion of the center worktable which will be built in the months leading up to this event. The table will be divided with temporary walls approximately 12” high to provide clear separation without hindering visibility too much.
The lobby is currently undergoing changes and will look much different by the time of the event. Vendor booths in this area will have optional tables, but are ideal spaces for vendors with rack displays. If you want a booth in this area and would prefer not to have tables, please be sure to mention that in your vendor application.
Asmbly will have a vendor booth and new member sign up area in the main entrance side of the lobby next to the electronics shop area. The Asmbly vendor booth will have some free swag items, as well as other items for purchase.
This shop space will have the door propped open during the event. Vendors set up in this area should be mindful of line of sight opportunities to draw guests’ interest through the lobby window.
Lots of vendor space is available in the woodshop area! Depending on demand and the size of booths vendors request, we may consider splitting the 4’x8’ workbenches in half to accommodate more vendors.
Several new work tables will be available for vendor set ups in the metal shop as we continue setting up this area in the coming months. Welding curtains will be moved to the opposite side so that they are closer to the walls and covering tool shelves.
A small number of booths will be available outside the main entrance, but there are important stipulations to keep in mind with these. This event will be occurring in early December which is often nice weather in Austin, but does have the potential to be cold or rainy. We will not have overflow space available inside for outdoor vendors if there is bad weather. Vendors opting for outdoor booths should keep this in mind and prepare accordingly. Outdoor vendors will also need to supply their own popup tents and tables.
