WICHITA — Intrust Bank Arena had an operating loss in March and lower numbers of events, attendees and ticket sales through the first quarter compared with last year, the county said today.
Ron Holt, assistant county manager, said this year's numbers weren't expected to look as good as last year, which he called "a phenomenal year by all measures."
"We do expect for the arena to be much, much, much in the black for this year," Holt said.
Bookings aren't always predictable and rely on how many entertainment acts are on tour, he said.
For March, net building income was down $28,390, but the arena's year-to-date net income still showed a positive bottom line at $111,108, he said.
