Tekko (formerly Tekkoshocon) is an annual anime convention held during April at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The convention has been held in various locations around the Pittsburgh metropolitan area and is run by a non-profit organization, the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society. Tekkoshocon’s name was a blend of the Japanese word tekkosho, meaning steel mill (a reference to Pittsburgh’s industrial steel-producing history), and adapting the suffix “-con” (from convention), which is a common nomenclature archetype among such conventions.
