Cancellation and Refund Policy

Registration cancellations received in writing by the Conference Organisers by Monday, 7th May, 2018 will be accepted and all fees refunded less an AUD$125 Administration Fee.

Cancellations received after this date cannot be accepted and will not be refunded; however, transfer of your registration to another person is acceptable. The full name and address details of the new delegate must be advised in writing to the Conference Organisers at least five (5) days prior to the Conference. No refunds will be made for non-attendance at the Conference and any unpaid registration fees will still be payable.

In the case of a medical emergency which has caused a registered delegate to not attend the Conference, the Conference Organiser must be provided with a medical certificate or appropriate documentation before any refund will be considered. Where the Conference Organisers are advised of the situation after the Conference, and a refund is deemed to be appropriate, the delegate must still pay the administration fee, along with any catering charges incurred for all catering events at which they were scheduled to attend.

Accommodation cancellations received within 60 days of the arrival date will incur a fee equivalent to 50% of the cancelled accommodation. Cancellations made less than 30 days prior to the arrival date will incur a cancellation fee equal to the 100% of the total accommodation fee. No refunds will be made for non-attendance and any unpaid accommodation fees will still be payable.
