All conference attendees (except plenary speakers) are required to book and pay directly with the accommodation vendors in Nelson. We recommend you book your accommodation early as February is peak tourism season and there is a public holiday (Waitangi day on Wed 6 Feb) during the conference. If you are a plenary speaker, you will be booked into the Rutherford Hotel. Confirmation and your booking number will be sent to you privately.
