Tekko 2019 at David L. Lawrence Convention Center - Pittsburgh Festivals & Events
The Region’s Premier Anime, Gaming, Music, Fashion and Japanese Pop Culture Convention!
Tekko (formerly Tekkoshocon) is an annual Japanese Pop Culture convention, currently in its 16th year, held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Tekko is presented by a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society (PittJCS).
The original name,Tekkoshocon, was a blend of the Japanese colloquialism tekkosho, meaning steel mill (a reference to Pittsburgh’s industrial steel-producing history), and adapting the suffix “-con” (from convention).
