PDAC attendance, down again

Here's the NR, here's how it kicks off:
TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 04, 2015) - The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) welcomed 23,578 attendees from over 100 countries to its annual convention. The crowd included investors, analysts, mining executives, geologists, government officials and students who made the annual pilgrimage to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) for the largest exploration and mining event in the world. 
"We consider this a very successful year, attendee feedback has been extremely positive and the number of attendees is similar to last year," says PDAC President Rod Thomas.
To be accurate, PDAC 2014 had 25,122 attendees so this year's is down by 6.1%. Obviously the word "similar" means something different in the Canadian dictionary.
