Event details

TypeCon is an annual conference presented by the non-profit Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA), an international organization dedicated to the promotion, study, and support of typography and related arts.

We’ve been putting the finishing touches on this year’s conference program and are very excited to share a preview of what to expect this summer in Boston. From August 23rd through 27th, some of the most influential names in type and design will be descending on Beantown.


Along with a jam-packed main program, other events include the Type & Design Education Forum, the keynote presentation by Martina Flor, the popular Type Quiz hosted by Allan Haley, the SOTA Silent Auction, drinks and noshes at the SOTA Spacebar, plus several international type exhibitions. Workshops, presentations, panel discussions, networking events, tours, and other social gatherings will round out nearly a week’s worth of typographic adventures and inspiration.
