Accommodation

Brisbane has a superb range of accommodations to suit all budgets, tastes and delegates’ needs. The selected hotels are located in the South Bank precinct or the Central Business District. All are within walking distance of the Congress venue, the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC), meaning delegates can navigate their way to and from the venue safely and with ease.

Brisbane is a river city and provides two direct footbridges between the inner city and the South Bank. Hotels, restaurants, bars and entertainment are co-located and you will be spoilt for choice of cuisine. Delegates can quickly get to the Congress venue and move easily around the city.

The WMC 2023 team have secured a range of accommodations from apartments to single premier rooms, all in the vicinity of the venue and first-class facilities for your consideration. Emporium and Rydges Hotels at the South Bank and W Hotel in the business district are our nominated premier Congress Headquarters venues.

Kindly contact the Accommodation Secretariat should you wish to:

Accommodation will not be confirmed until payment of the first night is received by Credit Card or full pre-payment is received by Cheque or Electronic Funds Transfer. Your payment will be forwarded to your hotel and credited to your room account. Delegates must settle the balance of their account with the hotel concerned upon check-in/out, depending on the hotel’s policy. If accommodation deposits are not received before Tuesday, 23 May 2023, your room will be cancelled and released back to the hotel. The WMC 2023 Accommodation Secretariat does not take responsibility for accommodation if payment is not received by this date.

Cancellations

NO ACCOMMODATION PAYMENTS WILL BE REFUNDED ON OR AFTER Tuesday, 23 May 2023.

Early Arrival

As check-in at most hotels is not until 1400, it is possible that your room may not be ready for immediate occupation on your early arrival. Whilst hotels will do everything possible to accommodate early arrivals, if you wish to be guaranteed immediate occupation, you can pay an extra day’s tariff for the night before you are due to arrive. If you wish to take this precaution, please advise the Accommodation Secretariat on the registration form so we can notify the hotel that your room is required early.

No Show Policy

In the event of a “No Show” on the date of arrival, full cancellation penalties apply to all nights of the stay.
