                                                A requirement of the hotels is that all bookings include credit card details.

                                                Delegates are recommended to organise travel insurance. Individual policies may differ and are not likely to cover travel bans but you may be able to get coverage for cancelled accommodation charges due to contracting covid and not being able to attend.

                                                Cancellation of accommodation must be submitted in writing to the Convention Secretariat before 18 August 2023. Any cancellation received after 18 August 2023 will incur up to 100% cancellation penalty, depending on the property. Delegates who confirm accommodation but do not advise of cancellation before the accommodation deadline of 18 August 2023 will incur charges for the ‘no- show’ rate as penalised by the hotel. This charge is calculated as the room rate per night multiplied by the dates booked and secured. Please ensure the accommodation dates are correct on the confirmation email.
