Hotel guests will be subject to the cancellation policy of their nominated hotel. Please refer to the cancellation policy outlined for your preferred property.


We encourage delegates to book accommodation well in advance as hotels impose strict release dates for block accommodation bookings, all rooms are released 30 days prior to the meeting and therefore accommodation bookings requested after 17 October 2019 will need to be secured by delegates through the hotels directly.


Either one night’s accommodation rate or a credit card is required to secure your room. Please note bookings that have not advised either method by 17 October 2019 will be cancelled. Delegates are required to settle their own accounts including incidentals incurred upon check out. This deposit or your credit card guarantee will be forwarded onto the hotel. The hotel at their discretion will deduct the guarantee from your credit card.

Amendments to Booking

Amendments to accommodation including hotel preference, check in/out dates and room type will only be accepted in writing.

Early Arrival or Late Departure

Requests for early check in or late check out must be advised in writing to Encanta Event Management. Please note that early check in may require the booking of an additional room night prior to guarantee immediate access to the hotel room.
