How do I register?

Visit the registration page for individual and group booking prices and to register online. Accommodation bookings can be made at the same time as your convention registration or at a later stage by logging back into your existing booking. Registration closes Friday 11 August 2017. For registration enquiries and assistance, contact the Convention registration managers, Arinex, by phone +61 (0)2 9265 0700 or email.

Can I share my registration with my friend?

No. As outlined in the registration terms and conditions, one registration may not be shared by several individuals. Group registration, student, not-for-profit and distance discounts and one-day registration options are available for this purpose. To avoid embarrassment, do not approach the registration desk asking them to hold your name badge for someone else to collect. This request will be politely declined.

I have a special dietary requirement. What do I do?

Let us know! Then we can make the appropriate arrangements with the venue.
