TypeCon is the annual grassroots, typography-focused convention run by the non-profit Society of Typographic Aficionados. The content of TypeCon conferences focuses on — but is not limited to — the areas of typography, type design, printing, letterpress, calligraphy, the book arts, publishing, design education, and type-related technologies including webfonts.

Since the inaugural conference in 1998, TypeCon has explored type for the screen, printing history, Dutch design, type in motion, Arabic calligraphy, non-Latin scripts, the American Arts and Crafts movement, experimental typography, type design technologies, webfonts, and much more. Special events include the Type & Design Education Forum, hands-on workshops, and gallery exhibitions of international type and design.

The convention is held in a different North American host city each year.
