"If people who attended had a great experience and were provided with some relief in these tough times, then I can proudly say that the festival was a success," he said.
"We are expecting to see an impact of the current conditions on attendance numbers for TCMF 2020, and that's okay."
More insight into the tourist numbers will be released in the coming weeks once ground researchers and venue operators have provided their feedback.
