Another Florida convention, Houkocon 2007 in Jensen Beach, has been cancelled. In a post on the Houkocon forums, the convention chairman stated that the cancellation is due to two other Florida conventions, Anime Festival Orlando and Yasumicon, being scheduled so close. "[It would] be virtually impossible for us to survive this year due to the fact of two existing cons are smacked on either side of us," she explained. Issues with the hotel were also cited as factoring into the decision.

The convention hopes to return at a later date.

This announcement comes a little over three months after another Florida convention, Anime Express in Daytona Beach, announced its cancellation.
