This was my first year attending Tekko, along with Laura and our friend Jessie who was selling her soap and bath products in the artist alley. Tekko is also the first convention where I’ve travelled six hours from the east side of Pennsylvania to the west side, but it was well worth the long trip!
Tekko is held in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Tekko is not quite large enough to take over the entire convention center yet, as evident by the fact that we shared the space with a vaping convention during the weekend. While there are hotels connected to the convention center, our hotel of choice was the Homewood Suites, which had just recently opened in the area. While it was a little far, about a 10 minute walk, it was a nice hotel with free breakfast and kitchens in the rooms—so we saved a lot of money on food!
