We recommend you register for the full convention! If your schedule doesn’t allow, you can register for a single day. Partners or social delegates can select the social events they’d like to attend.

Travel

The closest airports are Gold Coast Airport at Coolangatta or Brisbane Airport. The Sheraton Grand is approximately 45min from Coolangatta airport or 1 hour from Brisbane airport. There are a range of public transport options from each airport, plus taxi/Uber alternatives.

Yes, you’ll need to make your own arrangements for airport transfers to and from the venue. A taxi or Uber is likely to be the most convenient option.

No, you may choose to stay elsewhere on the Gold Coast. However, accommodation is very limited at this time of year, so we recommend booking early. If possible, select a venue that is near by, so that it is easy for you to arrive in time for the morning sessions each day, and return to your hotel/accommodation when you’re ready.

General

All registration materials will be collected at our registration desk on site at the Sheraton from Wednesday 9 November onwards.

Partners are welcome to attend the social aspects of the convention and can register as a social delegate via the registration form. If you’re bringing your family and need assistance arranging babysitting, please let us know.
