For immediate release
Association records another surplus
The Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Association have released their Annual Report announcing results for the
financial year ending 31 December 2014. Despite some poor weather on the Wednesday and Thursday of the 2014 Canterbury A Show, attendance increased with approximately 103,000 visitors, slightly up on 2013.
The 152nd Canterbury A Show, hosted by the Canterbury A Association, attracted 6682 livestock, equestrian and feature competition entries. The Trade Exhibitor section
experienced its most successful year in the history of the Show, with many exhibitors choosing to expand their presence
at the three-day event.
The Canterbury A Association’s 2014 financial performance was credible, resulting in a surplus after depreciation of $102,498, up from
$85,003 for the year ending 2013.
Canterbury A Association Chairman Ben Tothill said that the surplus will be reinvested back into improving the Show and maintaining
the Canterbury Agricultural Park for future Shows and events.
The Annual General Meeting of the Canterbury A Association will be held Wednesday 1 April 2015, commencing at 3pm in the Gloaming Room at Riccarton Park Racecourse.
All members of the Association are invited to attend.
The 2015 Canterbury A Show will be held Wednesday 11 to Friday 13 November at Canterbury Agricultural Park in Christchurch.
