Event director Steven Callaghan said: "Trading conditions in the landscaping industry remain tough. Many of our major exhibitors are struggling to commit and this has been making it difficult for us to achieve our goal of significantly growing the show for 2011".
The event is now scheduled for 22 -23 February 2012 at Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
Callaghan added: "The recession has seen a number of popular shows simply move back a year", adding that the show might become bi-annual.He said other shows had not hit sales because "the Hard Landscaping Show is very specialist and that is its real appeal to exhibitors and visitors alike".
Callaghan added: "We are very sorry to disappoint those exhibitors that have already contracted for the 2011 show and look forward to welcoming them together with the many visitors that have already pre-registered in 2012."
