The Fort Worth (Texas) Boat Show will not be held this year, with a posting on the event's website saying it was postponed until 2013.

“We did a good job with what we had for as long as we could,” John-Morris Edwards, president of Innovation Event Management, which produces the show, told the Star-Telegram newspaper. ”It was a lot of things, the perfect storm of problems. The economy is not the best environment for big-ticket items.”

Rising fuel prices, last year's severe drought that kept lake levels low and consolidation in the boating industry were also factors, Edwards said.

No date has been set for next year's show.
