  • The conference will be held at the Novotel Sydney Central hotel in downtown Sydney (the hotel just changed its name from the Citigate Central hotel and many online mapping programs may still use the old name). Located near Chinatown and Sydney's Central Business District, the Novtel Sydney Central hotel is an ideal location that offers easy access to dining and Sydney's many attractions.

    All conference events, with the exception of the conference dinner, will take place in the hotel. Lunch is included in the registration and will take place in the hotel restaurant.

    For those wishing to explore and experience Sydney, the Novotel Sydney Central is located near many of Sydney's most famous attractions. The hotel is located at the edge of Chinatown and Sydney's CBD and is only a short walk away from the world famous Darling Harbour. Buses on nearby George Street provide quick access to the iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

    The Novotel Sydney Central is easy to access once you arrive in Sydney. Sydney's Kingsford-Smith Airport is served by most major airlines. The easiest way to get from the airport to the conference venue is by taxi which will cost approximately $30 AUD. Alternatively there is a train that runs from the airport to the city at a cost of $16.20 AUD per person. Follow the signs in the terminal to the train. Take the train towards the city and get off at the Central Station stop, from Central it is only a 3 block walk to the Novotel Sydney Central.
