3. The number of events has increased by nine (9.)

4.

(a) Hiring fees

Hiring fees are varied and in the case of the major hirers quite complicated. Their basic hiring fee falls in the range of 8-15 % of gross ticket revenue, not including memberships and corporate suites as these are subject to their respective revenue sharing arrangements. The ACTJRU Finals did not attract a specific hiring fee as the cost of this event was covered by sponsorship and the ACT Rugby Union.

Celtic Crossroads was an in-house production and, accordingly, a hiring fee was not applicable. The Stadiums Authority considers the Riverdance hiring fee to be commercial-in-confidence information, which, if revealed, could undermine future revenue opportunities.

Further information may be found in previous Stadiums Authority Annual Reports.

(b) Costs

Costs for each event vary depending on items such as: attendance, whether it is day or night event, and catering, audio-visual and security requirements.

Further information may be found in previous Stadiums Authority Annual Reports.
