Adafruit supplies hundreds of hackerspaces and makerspaces around the world with tutorials and great electronics (with great discounts!). We also have a series of articles on how to start your own hackerspace by Eric Michaud. We’re celebrating all of them on the Adafruit blog!
Today is Madlab & TOG from the EMEA region!
Madlab – Manchester, UK
“Calling all geeks, artists, designers, illustrators, hackers, innovators and idle dreamers; the Manchester Digital Laboratory is here for you! It’s a space you can get together with like-minded individuals and work on your urban gardening, crochet, hacking, programming, media arts, filmmaking, animating project without worrying that you’re in a coffee shop, pub or other unsuitable venue. We know hackers and craftspeople need work space and may need to get down and dirty – we also know sometimes you need a quiet area to present and show works to your peers. We support both activities. And we hope there will be a rich mix of individuals who’ll get out of the usual zones, the knitter talking to the software architect, the cupcake maker scheming with the laser etching builder. We know some good will come of this.”
TOG – Dublin, Ireland
“TOG is a hackerspace based in Dublin City Centre. It is a shared space where members can have a place to be creative and work on their projects in an environment that is both inspiring and supportive of both new and old technologies. We had our first meeting on the 21st of January 2009 with a group of 17 people, some who had never met before, came together to form a group with the intention of setting up a hackerspace in Dublin. The meeting was great and everyone was full of enthusiasm.
In less then 3 months we had membership coming in from over 20 members and a roof over our head. The space is fully funded by its members and gives members 24/7 access to work on a project or just a place to hang out.”
These are just 2 of our distributors in the EMEA region, make sure to visit the Adafruit distributor page to view them all! We will be spotlighting Adafruit resellers from around the world on a regular basis!
Would you like to be an Adafruit distributor?
We have a very easy reseller program and would love to have more great people and companies as distributors, resellers and hackerspaces, all of whom receive special prices on their orders.
For many of our products you get up to a 30 % discount for just 1 quantity. This allows you to get a great discount even when ordering a small amount of items and it’s great for folks who want to try out a new product in their store. As always, if you order 50 or more of these items, this discount goes up to 40%. Note! *Not ALL items have reseller pricing, these discounts are only for items that can be marked down for our resellers, but we are adding more products to this list all the time! Remember, in order to receive this discount, orders must be $250 or more, not including shipping.
We have great relationships with our distributors and are working to provide even more features for them in the future. To become one now, click here and keep in mind the following:
- Are you an online store, a physical store or a hackerspace that would like to distribute our products? If so, please include a link.
- Will your orders be at least $250 (not including shipping)?
- Can you pay via PayPal or credit card? For large international orders, can you pay via wire transfer?
- Do you have a UPS account? (This is not required, but would be helpful).
We look forward to working with you!
