PechaKucha Dayton is a free quarterly idea-sharing party and networking event for adults. PechaKucha, pronounced Pe - Chak - cha, Japanese for “chit chat,” is a fast-paced style of presenting using 20 slides discussed for 20 seconds each (20x20).

PechaKucha started in Tokyo in February 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture. Dayton is one of over 1,000 official PK cities. We host a PK four times a year, attracting about 300 attendees to each event.

PK Dayton is sponsored locally by Catapult Creative, Michael Kalter LLC, Dragonfly Editorial, and Oregon Printing Communications. It's a volunteer-run event by local organizers Jason, Katy, Mike and Shayna. We hope to see you at the next #PechaKucha!
