In  2018, Foundation for Community Driven Innovation joined forces with  St. Petersburg College-Seminole Campus and the Innovation Lab at SPC-Seminole, to co-host Gulf Coast Maker& Comic Con,  bringing together the best of two great events – Gulf Coast MakerCon & Pinellas Comic & Maker Con – into one huge showcase celebration of DIY Inventive and Artistic Spirit!

With the advent of AMRoC we’re taking a breather in 2019.  Look for Gulf Coast MakerCon to resume in 2020, in the University of South Florida area, where the Advanced Manufacturing & Robotics Center is located.

As always, Gulf Coast MakerCon will provide a platform for everyone to join together to share resources, learn a craft, hone their skills, find career and academic opportunities, try new tools and innovations, and much more.
