The 2007 iterations of Gen Con So Cal, Garden City Anime Festival, and Anime Express have all been canceled.
According to a letter from Gen Con CEO Peter Adikson, declining attendance and a lack of dealers' room reservations caused the California convention to end. Gen Con Indy, however, is still planed for August 16-19.
Daytona Beach's Anime Express is cancelled due to reconstruction from a Christmas tornado and issues with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's administration: "Several SERIOUS breeches of trust, ERAU policy, and even of the law itself were witnessed and documented by ERAU Safety over the past two years of the convention, and that has unfortunately cast the AGAnime Club in a very bad light in ERAU's eyes."
Garden City Anime Festival in St. Ctharines, Ontario is being cancelled due to an unexplained "conflict" among the staff, according to CEO Amanda Hall.
