Accommodation

The Conference Office has secured a selection of accommodation options within easy walking distance of the Conference venue.
Why book through the conference office?

Booking through the Conference Office will offer you the following benefits: 

  • Specially negotiated rates and booking terms and conditions
  • No booking fees
  • Flexibility to change your booking at any time up to 30 days prior to the Conference start date
  • Assistance prior to, during and following your visit
  • Personalised service
  • No deposit is required to secure your booking – simply use your credit card to guarantee your reservation. Some hotels will charge your credit card 30 days prior to arrival – see below for each hotel’s terms and conditions
  • Full pre-payment can still be made by noting this in the ‘Special Requirements’ section when completing your accommodation booking in the online registration form

To secure your accommodation, simply complete the online registration, attached to the Conference registration form. A valid credit card number must be provided and will be passed on to the hotel to guarantee your booking. Your credit card will not be charged a deposit at the time of booking or in advance of arrival (unless stated in the terms and conditions for each hotel below). Your accommodation and incidental costs must be settled direct with the hotel on arrival or departure. Please note hotels may charge a surcharge on credit card payments.

Please note the check in time is generally 1500 hours. If you require immediate access to your room prior to this time, hotels generally recommend booking for the evening before your stay commences. If you are arriving after 1800 hours please note this accordingly.

The hotels impose strict release dates of 30 days prior to arrival so we encourage you to book early. Any booking requests received less than 30 days prior to arrival are subject to availability.

Please note cancelled bookings or failure to arrive at the hotel on the designated date of arrival (no show) will incur penalties. See details below before making your selection.

Any changes to your booking must be made via email to the Conference Office – not directly with the hotel.

All room rates noted are based on room only, unless otherwise specified, and are in Australian Dollars.

It brings a lot of value to the industry: a lot of people come here for the excellent presenters and CPD points, but I think the connection with everyone getting back together is a big part of it.
Another great line-up of presentations from well informed and interested presenters that kept me engaged from start to finish.
