2nd Shenzhen Maker Week - Road Closure Map

The area in red in the main venue area and so will be closed off to cars that don't have special permits. The surrounding areas may also be affected so be sure to plan ahead. The roads marked with the green are where you can expect traffic police to help control/manage traffic. The roads marked in blue are the ones the free shuttle buses will use to transport event attendees from metro stations to the event.


The event will be held at Shenzhen Bay Venture Plaza  in the Nanshan HiTech Park (Xuefu Road, Nanshan District, Shenzhen). It's going to be huge so if you want to go, we recommend that you do not drive or take a taxi or bus. From Shekou you can take the Metro and get off at the KeYuan Metro Stop Exit C. There'll be free shuttle service available to pick you up from there and take you to the event. If you're taking Metro Line 1, get off at the HiTech Park Station (GaoXinYuan) Exit C. Shuttles will be available there as well.


Good luck!
