On a hot and sunny weekend in September, the Dremel brand returned to World Maker Faire New York, the premier gathering place for Makers of all kinds.
Dremel had two exhibits onsite at World Maker Faire: one dedicated to its line-up of tools and the new Hatch project kit and one to its growing line of digital fabrication products. In the tool and demonstration booth, the brand offered make and take projects, an onsite sweepstakes and a Keshot photo booth so visitors could share selfies on social media.
“We always feel that we develop meaningful relationships with Makers when we expose them to all of the products we bring to the show,” said Allison Fishman, Dremel brand director. “It’s important to us to get people to try our tools to break down any hesitation and educate them on the versatility of Dremel products,” she said.
At the show the Dremel team debuted two new digital fabrication products: the Dremel DigiLab Laser Cutter and the Dremel DigiLab 3D45 3D Printer. Attendees could also stop by to meet Dremel Mission Makers Amy and Bill of American Heirloom and to see live demos of these two products. Dremel received the Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbon for its Dremel DigiLab Laser Cutter.
In addition Dremel President John Kavanagh was honored as the first speaker on the Main Stage on Saturday when he presented on the topic, “Redefining Invention: New Perspectives from Dremel.”
