The event features four separate but interconnected programs, each a unique experience with a specific goal. The Fab Lab Conference is the third program.
The Fab Lab Conference is the key event in the digital fabrication community, attracting makers, educators, entrepreneurs, and policymakers from around the world. It is a forum for learning, innovation, and collaboration aimed at advancing the fields of digital fabrication, manufacturing, and AI development, among others.
This is the annual gathering of the global Fab Lab network, an opportunity to share experiences and knowledge, collaborate on projects, and explore new ideas related to digital fabrication and manufacturing, maker culture, and innovation. Each year, a different city or country hosts the event, with the goal of showcasing the local community and promoting cross-cultural exchange.
The first FabX event was held in 2005, and it has since become a significant event in the global fabber/maker community. Join us for FAB23 Bhutan—the 19th edition of FabX—and be part of an unforgettable event that combines sustainable design, digital fabrication, and local knowledge for a truly impactful experience.
