TCONA is the world’s largest annual event featuring team and solo medal events, game show demonstrations and casting sessions, app demonstrations, and just-for-fun innovative trivia-based games of all kinds for players from across Canada, the U.S., Mexico and around the world. TCONA is everything you love about trivia, plus tons more: discussion panels, casting sessions, seminars on how to get on game shows (and win big) from people who know, presenters of different quizzes from around the world, plus the Team Trivia Championship, the 24-Hour Game Show Throwdown, the Incredible Not-A-Race, the Trivia Hall Of Fame, the North American Quiz Bowl Championship, LearnedLeague Live, plus tons of other games and more stuff than ever before!


This year we’re hosting more events than ever, and continuing to confirm big surprises and exciting news for all attendees! From the First Quiz on Friday morning until the Closing Ceremony & Medals on Sunday afternoon, your brain’s biggest challenge will be finding down time to check out the rest of Las Vegas and work through last night’s hangover. Be on a team for Quiz Bowl, Trash Trivia, Just Music, or the National Team Trivia Championships. Fly solo in Last Quizzer Standing and SmartyPants. Get your nerdy party on with Trivioke Trivaoke. Play with words at this year’s Punslingers competition, run by the 2016 winner at the O.Henry Pun-Off World Championships. Put your puzzle skills to the test in an Escape Room designed by NPR’s Ask Me Another puzzle guru John Chaneski, stay up all night for the 24-Hour Game Show Throwdown (raising money for ExtraLife and the Children’s Hospital of L.A.), and vote for this year’s inductees to the Trivia Hall of Fame. Sign up for the TCONA mailing list and stay up to date on all the news!
