‘This is the best the Netherlands has to offer’ – as minister Jet Bussemaker described FabCity, has now officially opened. At the sun-drenched kick-off at the Head of Java island the minister couldn’t (and didn’t have to) curb her enthusiasm.

Together with mayor Eberhard van der Laan (‘This is a city for citizens’)she visited some of the pavilions. They marvelled at the manufacturing plant of the Wikkelhouse and the 3D steelprinting robot of MX3D, after which the mayor left and Bussemaker continued her tour, meeting participants and jumping on a Witkar for a short spin. FabCity has already made a lasting impression – the future for everyday living has started.
Burgemeester vd Laan bij opening #FabCity: You’re in the most Rotterdam-ish part of town: the harbour area!
