Anime Southwest, has announced the cancellations of seven guests: Horsedeer Productions, Laura Post, Lisle Wilkerson, Marissa Floro, Martin Billany, Warky T. Chocobo, and Warumono. The convention's own "Guests" page does not cite a reason, but states "Due to unfortunate circumstances, the following previously announced guests will no longer be attending Anime Southwest this year. Each previously announced guest extends their apologies to their fans who were anxious to see them."

The convention had been promoting some of these guests as recently as two days ago.

Martin Billany, Marissa Floro, and Warumono also announced their cancellations on social media.

This news comes one week after a new venue was announced for the convention. Originally scheduled at the Radisson Hotel Denver Southeast in Aurora, Colorado, the hotel announced in mid-March that it had cancelled the event. On April 1st, the convention announced that it had found a new location at the Ramada Plaza Northglenn/Denver North in Northglenn. The new location is 25 miles from the former location.

Anime Southwest is run by the same organization that runs Sukoshicon conventions in the South. They entered the Denver market last year when they licensed the Animeland Wasabi name. However, they split off for their 2016 convention and Animeland Wasabi 2016 was not organized by Sukoshicon.

Hello everyone,

We never cancelled the event. We did change venues and alerted everyone of the new venue.
The guests that decided to cancelled were not held to their cancellation penalties.
Our event page has some email screen caps showing what took place in regards to needing to change venues. If would like to follow up with me, the may contact me through I am usually available M - F from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central time. Thank you.
