Floriade attendance up in the air?

johnboy 12 March 2009 4

CityNews observes that something appears to have gone awry with the official Floriade attendance figures:

    The official attendance records and other information about the success of Floriade are overdue – compared to previous reports – even though Mr Barr told a press conference on January 12 that he anticipated the official report would be made available in “a matter of weeks.” Australian Capital Tourism, which is compiling the report, would not comment on its progress and referred “CityNews” to the minister’s office.

Surely nothing to hide?

250,000…flowers? not people, surely.

wow exactly 250,000 people, that’s mighty convenient. Most likely reason is that the way they “count” the figures is probably at best a rough estimate to begin with. Though it’s not the only government owned/run tourist attraction in Canberra where their attendance figures would be well.. dodgy. You could add the attendance figures at raiders games to that list, I think they count support staff and the like in their figures judging by some of the numbers they gave last year (in comparison to the number of people by looking around the stadium).
