Accommodation will not be confirmed until a deposit of one night's tariff is received by credit card or full payment by electronic funds transfer or cheque is made. During the online registration form, a credit card is required as a guarantee for your booking. This deposit will be forwarded to your hotel and will be credited to your room account. Delegates must settle the balance of their account with the hotel concerned upon check out. If accommodation deposits are not received by Monday 11 September 2017 your room will be released back to the hotel. The Conference Secretariat does not take responsibility for accommodation if deposits are not received by this date.

Deadline for accommodation bookings

The Conference Secretariat must return all unsold rooms to the hotels/apartments on Monday 11 September 2017, therefore accommodation bookings after this date cannot be guaranteed. The rates quoted are only valid for bookings made by Monday 11 September 2017.


No accommodation deposits will be refunded after Monday 11 September 2017.

Participants who confirm an accommodation booking with a credit card or full pre-payment and who cancel after Monday 11 September 2017 will need to contact the Conference Secretariat at and check their hotel’s specific terms and conditions for details of cancellation policies.

Late bookings

Late bookings can be made through the Conference Secretariat after Monday 11 September 2017 but are subject to availability and may not be at the special rate. Credit card details are required to secure a reservation.

Early arrival

As check in is at 1400 at most hotels, your room may not be ready for immediate occupation if you arrive early. While 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 Conference Secretariat on the registration form so that we can notify the hotel.

Late arrival

Please indicate if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800 on the day of check in. Failure to do so might result in your booking being cancelled and your room being given to someone else.

Change of booking

Any changes to your booking must be made in writing to the Conference Secretariat and not directly to the hotel. Please note charges may apply after Monday 11 September 2017.
