We encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.
Informa does not have a third-party hotel booking agency representing this event aside from the above links. If you are contacted to book accommodation by any agency, this is not recommended as they are unknown to Informa.
The MEC Car Park is located at 16 Normanby Road, Southbank, VIC, 3006 and can be pre booked here.
Siddeley Street Car Park is convenient for entry to the convention centre. Early bird parking is available.
Full vaccination against Covid-19 is required for all in-person attendees.
To ensure the maximum safety of our audiences, Informa requires all in-person participants (speakers, delegates, partners, sponsors, exhibitors, suppliers) to have received two (2) doses of a Covid-19 vaccine to gain access to the physical event. For those unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, we encourage you to participate in the event virtually.
This is an important measure to keep our community members safe who have not yet been able to get vaccinated or who are unable to get vaccinated. We hope it will also help infuse confidence and alleviate concerns that some may still have about attending an event in person.

SPAM WARNING: List broking companies sometimes email exhibitors claiming to have attendee data. This is false and we advise you to delete this as it is spam.
SUPPLIER CALLS & EMAILS: Our official suppliers are detailed within this exhibitor manual. These suppliers may contact you directly to confirm your requirements for this event. You may experience other contractors pitching you for your busines and advising you they are the preferred contractor, however, unless the company is included in the service providers list, then they are providing false information.
