    "Emojicon blended the highbrow and lowbrow, from smiling piles of poop to art theory, from vegetable-shaped sex toys to questions of racial inclusion." - Buzzfeed

    Who's Coming?

    THE FIRST EMOJICON took place in San Francisco in November 2016, attracted 1,000 people across all of its events. Participants traveled from four continents to attend Emojicon: attendees hailed from Australia, China, Japan, Great Britain, Finland, India, Sweden, Hong Kong, and Germany.


    Speakers and guests included many notable emoji figures: members of the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee, the founder of Emojipedia, and a digital curator from MoMA.


    Emojicon will draw a mix of emoji aficionados across the spectrum. There will be artists, programmers, academics, marketing folks and emoji enthusiasts.
