Brisbane offers visitors a variety of high-quality accommodation, from five-star deluxe properties to economy hotels and motels all at exceptionally competitive rates. Discount accommodation rates have been negotiated at the following official General Assembly/Congress hotels for delegates.

Sufficient accommodation has been set aside for anticipated General Assembly/Congress delegates; however, accommodation is limited owing to several major events in Brisbane during the General Assembly/Congress dates. Unsold General Assembly/Congress accommodation must be released in mid-May 2001. If you require accommodation, we strongly advise you to register before 15 May 2001. We cannot guarantee to fulfill accommodation reservations received after this date.

You must reserve your accommodation on this form to obtain the discounted rates shown. A deposit of AUD 200 (or a credit card guarantee to this amount) is required to hold our accommodation reservation. Reservations cannot be accepted without this deposit or guarantee. The balance of your accommodation costs is payable directly to your hotel. Please note that in the event of cancellation or nonarrival, your deposit/guarantee may be forfeited.
