While its primary focus is Japanese shows and culture, A-Kon also sports guests and events related to tabletop and video games as well as a bit of music.

The 26th A-Kon anime and gaming convention will offer hundreds of activities during three days of nonstop action at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. There will be gaming rooms, game-design workshops, performances, an art show, a cosplay contest, and a DollAKon mini convention. A J-Pop Room will offer a variety of Japanese music. The event will also include celebrity anime guests, and guests from the gaming industry as well as actors and writers.
