Chokaigi 2 officially announced

Dwango (Nico Nico's mother company) officially announced yesterday that Chokaigi 2 will be held at Makuhari Messe on April 27-28, 2013 (The initial announcement was made in July)

Chokaigi (or Chou Kaigi) is a big convention of Nico Nico related subcultures. It had booths, stage shows, concerts, etc. Chou Tougeki was also held inside. The event was the first Tougeki 2012 qualifier and had SF4 exhibition matches between top players including Daigo Umehara.

Although this year Chokaigi attracted a lot of people, it didn't make any profit. In fact, it made a huge loss of 470.8 million yen (or almost $6 million). But the organizer insists to have another one, saying they have learned from the mistakes.

Makuhari Messe will be used again next year. The convention center is well-known for hosting Tokyo Game Show.
