Hello Kitty is everywhere – the Japanese import has dominated pop culture merchandise for years (show me something Hello Kitty hasn’t been placed on), and now the phenom is getting its own convention this fall.

Celebrate Hello Kitty’s 40th Anniversary at the first ever official Hello Kitty Convention in the world! Hello Kitty Con 2014 is a global gathering of fans and friends to celebrate all things Hello Kitty.

Taking place at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in Downtown LA’s Little Tokyo, Hello Kitty Con 2014 will offer interactive experiences and events for fans and friends of all ages, including activities, art, exhibits, exclusives, workshops, lectures, panels, sneak peeks, tattoos, food, fun, and many more surprises!

Join Hello Kitty and your friends at Hello Kitty Con 2014. As Hello Kitty always says, “You can never have too many friends!”

I think this is really a really cool announcement. Granted, I’m not in the Hello Kitty market, but I know and appreciate how important Hello Kitty has become in our culture, so I hope it is a huge success.

    While I’m generally not a fan of Hello Kitty, I’d actually not mind going to the convention if I had the means to do so.
