Tekko, a con in Pittsburgh held April 6-9, 2017, used to have a longer name, Tekkoshocon, and while the name was shortened, the con continues to grow. There are lots of reasons to go to Tekko. Here are ten.
2. The people at Tekko are wonderful
Pittsburgh has a friendliness and openness that makes making friends easy. And while at first the convention center seemed kind of big for the number of attendees, last year Tekko obtained a record attendance, with a 30% increase in total registrations, entertaining nearly 8,000 guests from 27 states. Over the four-day period, the economic impact to the greater Pittsburgh area was 4.7 million dollars, based on information from Visit Pittsburgh.
