H.H. Backer Associates, promoter of annual trade shows in Chicago and Atlantic City and publisher of Pet Age magazine, has announced the postponement of the 2013 Atlantic City spring show.Backer

The next Atlantic City show was to have taken place from April 10 to 12. The company has decided to switch to a biennial format, with the next A.C. show rescheduled for April 9 to 11, 2014.

Show Director Collette Fairchild blamed the sluggish economy and lack of support from key industry professionals for the decision.

The company will continue to present its more popular flagship event, the Pet Industry Christmas Trade Show, on an annual basis.

The next one is set for Oct. 12 to 14, 2012 in Chicago, with plans to move it to September (20 to 22, to be exact) in 2013.
