Accommodation

We have secured accommodation at various hotels in Queenstown and bookings can be made at the same time as registering online.  Note: some hotels include breakfast, others are based on a room only basis.  Due to being peak season in Queenstown (year-round), it is necessary to prepare all nights accommodation at the time of booking.  All rates are NZD and include GST.  If you were to amend/cancel your booking within 30 days of conference, unless we can-on sell your room, you will be charged 100% cancellation fee by the hotel.
