The hotel may charge a one night deposit at 30 days prior to the conference start or at check in. Delegates must settle the balance of their account and any incidentals upon check out. The deposit for the first night is non-refundable if the reservation is cancelled on or after Tuesday 13 September 2016, or if you do not arrive on the date specified in your booking.

The credit card details will also be used to pay for all room nights if you cancel within 15 days of your arrival date or do not show up.
