H.H. Backer Associates canceled their spring trade show, scheduled for April 9-11, 2014, at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, N.J.

“We simply could not get enough exhibitor support this year to allow us to produce a quality spring trade show that people have come to expect,” Colette Fairchild, the show’s director, said.

H.H. Backer’s flagship event, Backer’s Total Pet Expo Fall taking place Sept. 19-21, in Chicago, will continue as an annual event.

Exhibitors that have contracted for the spring show will have their choice of receiving a full refund or applying their deposit to the fall show.

    Very sad to hear this. Have always enjoyed the show & was looking forward to it this year. Have always found my best vendors at this show.

    I think the every two year thng killed it…. We the retailers need a regularly scheduled show… I think if they kept it yearly it would have been better for both the retailers and wholesalers… I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that this was cancelled… I can’t get to Chicago or Las Vegas or California or Florida for trade shows… this was my lifeline….

    With Global Pet Expo just a month before and also on the East Coast, not a surprise. Too bad there are zero shows on the west coast.
