Frequently Asked Questions

What if I need a refund?

Unfortunately, Tekko has a no refund policy for all badge purchases and all sales are final.  However, if you are unable to attend Tekko due to unforeseen circumstances, you can transfer your badge to someone else up to a week prior to the show starting. Please contact for details on how to transfer a badge.

Are single day badges available?

Tekko currently does not offer single day badges for Friday or Saturday. Sunday Only badges
are available for purchase at the door on Sunday for $30.

Can I purchase a Premium or Rock Star Badge at the door?

Premium and Rockstar badges are expected to sell out during pre-registration. The number of these badge types is limited due to the exclusive perks that are offered with them, so we recommend that you pre-register if you would like a VIP Badge. General badges will be available for purchase at the door for $50.

All badge perks are subject to change at the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society’s discretion.

Can I buy Tekko Merchandise Items separately?

Most merch items can be purchased at our Merch booth at Tekko, but we suggest you pre-order to make sure you get the correct size! Any merch items that will be available for pre-order only will have this listed in their description. Please see the descriptions of each item under the “Registration Add-Ons” section above for these details.

Can I register more than one individual at a time?

Yes! We have partnered with EventForge to provide a streamlined pre-registration experience for our attendees. You may purchase up to 10 tickets per transaction. If you are representing a group or organization of more than 10 people interested in attending Tekko, check out the details about Group Registration below.

If I purchased a badge but now cannot attend, can I transfer my badge to someone else?

Yes! If you already purchased a badge but are now unable to attend Tekko due to unforeseen circumstances, you can transfer your badge to someone else up to a week prior to the show starting. Please contact for details on how to transfer a badge.

Will my badge be mailed to me?

Tekko does not currently offer the option to receive your badge in the mail. Rockstar and Premium badge holders have access to separate, shorter registration lines for a faster badge pick-up experience.

What should I bring to Tekko in order to pick up my badge?

All you need to bring with you to Tekko to pick up your badge is your confirmation email! After you pre-register, you will receive a confirmation email with a QR code which will let our registration staff look up your information when you arrive. You can bring the email on your phone or print it out. 

If you are planning on attending any 18+ content at Tekko, remember to bring your photo ID as well.

What if I have a question that was not answered here?

Please reach out to us at for any additional questions related to Tekko Registration and we would be happy to assist you. We receive a high volume of emails (especially right before the event), so please be patient if we take a couple of days to get back to you.
