Venue & Hotel Information


The conference has secured several accommodation options for all budgets that are located within walking distance of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Bookings can be made during the registration process. You will need to select the available room type, indicate arrival and departure dates, and provide full prepayment in advance to secure your booking. Room rates offered via the conference website are guaranteed the best rates up until 30 days before the start of the conference. Within 30 days prior to arrival, the hotel may modify Best Available Rates for individual bookings at any given time. It is possible to add accommodation (where available) at a later date after your registration is already confirmed as long as this happens prior to the accommodation cut-off date.

Please note that accommodation can only be booked via your registration dashboard until Friday 15th September 2023. After this date, delegates will need to secure their accommodation directly with the hotel.

Accommodation cancellations and changes

The conference accommodation has a free cancellation policy up until 35 days before arrival (Friday 15th September). Rooms cancelled after the free cancellation period will be charged the full price of the total accommodation booked. Please email Joy at ASN Events if you have any queries regarding accommodation.

Due to the amount of publicly available information on conference and institution websites, some committee members and conference speakers are being contacted by third party companies, often from overseas, purporting to be event managers who request to secure accommodation or flight bookings. These requests always ask for financial information or credit card details and will generally be quite pushy in their attempts. Firms claiming to be legitimate accommodation and travel agents for your event, such as Business Travel Management and are not endorsed or authorised by the conference organisers. They are actively trolling event webs and trying to match invited speakers and committees with personal details often found on their own institute websites.

Please note, ASN Events will never ask a third party to retrieve credit card or financial information from you without prior personal arrangement with yourself and an ASN staff member. Where any payments are required, ASN Events will send through an invoice with remittance details which contains full ASN Letterhead, completed by an ASN Staff member and will always be from an email address. If for any reason you are unsure of the legitimacy of a requested payment, you should always contact your ASN Events Project Manager, Joy Sanchuj. We take the protection of the information you provide to us very seriously, including your contact details and any financial information and have instituted secure IT platforms to protect your data.
