Registration Terms & Conditions

**Non-payment does not constitute cancellation**

Registration: Registration fees for the conference are being charged in Australian Dollars and includes all taxes. By completing your registration, you have confirmed your attendance at the conference and acknowledgement of the below terms and conditions. A credit card surcharge is applicable.

Privacy: DbI, Able Australia and/or the Conference Organisers (Iceberg Events) will use the information you provide on the registration form to be in touch with you and to provide updates and information related to the conference. By registering, you agree that we may process your information in accordance to these terms. We will treat your information with respect. 

Registration cancellation: All cancellations must be made in writing to Iceberg Events. Cancellations received prior to 12 June 2019 will be refunded less a $AUD99 administration fee. Cancellations received on or after 12 June 2019 will not be refunded, although substitute delegates are welcome.

Accommodation bookings (at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa): To take advantage of the discounted accommodation rates at the hotel, bookings must be made via Iceberg Events. Any changes to your booking must be made via email to Iceberg Events: – not direct with the Surfers Paradise Marriott. Any bookings outside of the conference dates (being in 10 August 2019, out 17 August 2019) will be subject to the hotels' availability and best available daily rate. If you would like to book a longer stay, please do so via the registration form and you will be contacted by Iceberg Events if there are any cost differences advised by the hotel.

Full payment for your entire stay must be received before accommodation will be confirmed.  If payment for bookings has not been received 30 days out from the event, your accommodation booking will be released.

A block of accommodation is held for this event at Surfers Paradise Marriott, at the prices advertised. Occasionally, the accommodation block shown will be exceeded by a rush of last-minute bookings. Should this occur, every effort will be made to acquire more rooms at the rate advertised, at the same, or similar (nearby) venue. Should we be unable to acquire more rooms at a rate equal to or less than the advertised rate, your accommodation deposit will be refunded to you. We will communicate with you throughout this process.

Note: the Conference Organisers take no responsibility for reservations not booked directly with them at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa.

Accommodation cancellations (at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa): All accommodation cancellations must be made in writing to Iceberg Events prior to 3 June 2019. Refunds will not be made on cancellations on or after 3 June 2019 due to group booking policies. Substitutes are welcome.
