The 2014 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival announced a $177,644 financial loss from this year’s festival season and organizers say the event will need a radical overhaul to return to profitability.

Mardi Gras CEO Michael Rolik told a member meeting today that revenue from ticket sales and fees had been below what the organization had budgeted for.

Organizers had expected to raise an additional $350,000 in 2014 which would have made the event profitable for the second year in a row after it posted a profit of $45,693 in financial year 2012/2013.

Pink Iceland’s honesty policy

Author: , March 21st, 2014

Pink Iceland is a privately owned company, owned by half of the people in this picture:

As such it needs to make a profit. This profit pays the salaries of its staff, the rent, the wonderful and informative Pink Iceland website not to mention copious amounts of coffee for the owners. Most of Pink Iceland’s money is made through commissions. This is how it works: If our guests lets us book their tours, activities, and accommodation we collect a small (usually 10-15%) commission of the price.  This basically means that you pay the same price, regardless of whether you book directly – or through us. You may think this might cause us to recommend really expensive accommodation and tours. Not so. We promise to do our utmost to come up with a plan that suits you, and your budget. We would never recommend anything without full confidence and/or personal experience of what’s on offer. Our primary goal is working with and for the LGBTQI community and without the community’s support or goodwill we wouldn’t have lasted six months in the business. It is not least through word of mouth that we grow stronger every day. Our hope is that after reading this you too will ask for our recommendations and advice and/or book your holiday through Pink Iceland.
