Where is the Conference to be held?

Crown Conference Centre

Please note the Registration Desk will be located in the Crown Promenade.

How do I pay for my accommodation?

If you have booked your accommodation when you registered, your credit card details have been transferred to the hotel you have selected – please confirm this on check in with your hotel.

The hotel will request payment on check in/out. If you have arrived 24 hours later than your indicated arrival day you may find that you have forfeited your deposit.

If you will not be paying with your own credit card, and need to arrange payment before you arrive in Melbourne, the best way is via a credit card authorisation form enabling the hotel to process a third party card. To do so, please contact the hotel you selected and they will organise with you to receive a form for you to fill out and bring on arrival.

What is the dress code for the Conference?

Casual business attire is suitable for the Conference.

I have special dietary requirements – what do I do?

You must advise the conference managers of any special dietary requirements when you register for the conference. Caterers at each function will be informed of these. During the day there will be a buffet table offering food suitable for dietary requirements. If you are unsure, please don’t hesitate to ask staff at the registration desk.

IMPORTANT – If your dietary request relates to a life threatening allergy, please ensure that you advise the organisers as soon as possible.

I am a speaker, what should I do?

Please bring your PowerPoint presentation with you when you register. All speakers should present themselves to the Speakers Preparation Desk at least one hour prior to their scheduled presentation time, to upload their presentation.
Speakers are also requested to assemble in their session room 5 minutes before the commencement of the session if possible, to meet with their session chair and to familiarise themselves with the room and the audio visual equipment. A technician will be present in the room at all times. There will be facilities to test and modify your presentation if required.
