We are delighted to have been able to get fantastic rates with some of Dunedin's main hotels. We also have an option available in Queenstown for the section of the conference programme that will take place in the town.

To take advantage of these special rates, bookings must be made directly with the hotel. Please read the details for each hotel below and how to make your booking.

We would like to encourage you to all stay at the conference hotels as this will mean that everyone is in the same place giving more opportunity for you to network with new friends outside of the conference hours.

Please note all rates are per room per night, excluding breakfast and including GST.
