Please note that Business Travel Management does not represent IAFS 2023 in any way, nor have we authorised them to use the Meeting name on information they may issue. While we do not know enough about this third party’s intent, we recommend you reserve rooms with hotels listed on the Meeting website via the on-line booking site or by emailing Arinex.

Accommodation Conditions

How to Book

The Meeting Managers will forward your contact details, reservation and deposit to the hotel of your choice.

Accommodation may be booked when you complete the online registration form on the registration page of this website. Alternatively, email your requirements to the Meeting Managers who will be more than happy to assist.


A minimum of one night deposit of the room rate is to be paid at time of booking to guarantee your reservation. Your hotel booking is unable to be confirmed until the deposit payment is received.

The balance of your hotel account for all nights booked and any incidental charges (less the deposit paid to the Meeting Managers) will be payable to the hotel at the time of check-out.

NB: Please contact the Meeting Manager if you wish to pay in full prior to arrival.

Changes to bookings

Any required changes to your booking must be requested in writing to the Meeting Managers by 3 working days prior to the Meeting start date.

Late bookings

New bookings and changes to existing bookings requested within 30 working days prior to the Meeting start date will be subject to hotel availability and rate increase. It is recommended you book early to avoid disappointment.

Flexible terms and conditions apply to amendments or cancellations made up to 30 working days prior to the Meeting. Cancellation charges will apply after Wednesday, 18 October 2023.

Cancellation charges

  • A cancellation charge of one night’s accommodation rate will apply for cancelled bookings made after Wednesday, 18 October 2023.
  • A cancellation charge of one night’s accommodation rate will also apply if you do not arrive on the date you are booked to check in.
  • All cancellations and changes to your reservation must be made in writing to the Meeting Managers.

Reduction of stay

Should you need to reduce your stay within 30 working days of the start of the Meeting, cancellation charges may be incurred at the hotel’s discretion.

Non-arrival / no show

In the event of a non-arrival when one night deposit has been paid, your room will be held until the following morning (1100 hours) and your one night’s deposit will be retained by the hotel as a cancellation charge. In the event of a non-arrival when full pre-payment is made for the entire stay, your room will be held for each night booked and you will not be entitled to any refund.


The negotiated rates are valid up to 30 working days prior to the Meeting start date. After this, accommodation is subject to availability and rates are subject to an increase.

Rates may increase at any time without notice due to changes in government charges, taxes or levies.

As per standard hotel policies and procedures delegates will be required to provide credit card details upon check-in.  This is to cover any incidental charges incurred during your stay and all remaining unpaid room nights.

The hotel will place a hold on your credit card for an amount which covers all unpaid accommodation nights reserved plus a daily amount for incidental charges. Any money still held on your credit card by the hotel once you have settled your account and checked out will be released. If you will be settling your accommodation account and incidentals by cash you will still be asked to provide your credit card for guarantee at the time of check-in.

If you will be settling your accommodation account by cash you will be asked to pre pay for your accommodation in full when you check-in plus a cash deposit to cover incidentals that may be incurred during your stay. Should you not utilise any incidentals during your stay the cash deposit, for incidentals only, will be refunded to you by the hotel upon check-out.
Please note the daily incidental charge may vary across the listed hotels.

Daily Incidental Charges

Please note the daily incidental charges the hotel will hold on your credit card may vary across the listed hotels.  Should you wish to confirm the amount that will be held against your card, please enquire with your hotel during check-in.

Late Arrivals / No Shows

Please indicate when you register, or notify the Conference Managers in writing, if you will arrive at your hotel after 1800 hours.  Failure to do so may result in your room being treated as a no-show and being released.

Check in / check out times

Check-in time for most hotels is 1500 hours and check-out time is 1000 hours.  Should you wish to guarantee your check-in before 1500 hours, you will need to pre-book and pay for the previous night.  If you wish to guarantee a late check-out you will need to book for the next night.

These additional nights can be booked at the time of making your reservation. Alternatively, if you have already made your accommodation booking, you can request the additional nights by advising the Conference Managers in writing.
