The cancellation of Canterbury's A and P show is a huge economic loss for the region. 

Three Cup and Show events - the Agricultural Show, Addington Cup Week and Riccarton Park Races - were expected to generate more than four million dollars of visitor spend. 

Christchurch Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner told Tim Dower Christchurch NZ is looking at other events which could mitigate the loss of visitors. 

"Very difficult to see what could replace that large number of visitors that normally would be in town."
