Your name and contact information may be used by the Congress Secretariat and other approved stakeholder, for marketing and managing this and future events of this type.

Change of Booking

Any change in booking must be made in writing to The Accommodation Secretariat and NOT directly to the hotel before Friday 20 December 2019. Any changes received after Friday 20 December 2019will be at the hotels discretion and based on availability.

Early Arrival

As check in at most hotels is not until 1400, it is possible that your room may not be ready for immediate occupation on your early arrival. Whilst hotels will do everything possible to accommodate early arrivals, if you wish to be guaranteed immediate occupation you can pay an extra day’s tariff for the night before you are due to arrive. If you wish to take this precaution, please advise the Accommodation Secretariat on the registration form so we can notify the hotel that your room is required early.

Late Arrival

Please indicate if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800. Failure to do so might result in your room being released.
