Rodeo Gatineau

momentarily suspended

Gatineau, May 10 2016 – The organisers of the 2nd Edition of Rodeo Gatineau, which was to take place May 20 to 22, 2016, have decided to momentarily suspend the event. This is due to the low pre-sale of tickets which is required to finance the event.

The Board of Directors is reviewing all possible solutions to prevent a deficit with the event, and to ensure that the client base receive a performance that meets their expectations.  The organisers are planning to postpone the event to a later date this summer.
« We want to offer an event that stands out from others. Having attended Rodeo Gatineau last year, I see the long-term potential. We just need to ensure we consider the risks. The Board wishes to reposition and return with good news», said Marc Lauzon, president of the Equestrian Centre Organization in Gatineau.

We are working very hard for the event and thank the volunteers and partners who are present with us in this great adventure. I understand the board’s decision and I support it”, said Isabelle Millette, Director General of Rodeo Gatineau.

The Board of Directors and Management will not issue further comments and will not grant interviews at this time. A press release will be published after the next Council meeting, scheduled for next week.
