WALDRONSMITH Management has arranged special rates at a number of hotels within walking distance of the SKYCITY Auckland Convention Centre. 

To secure your accommodation, simply nominate your selected hotel, arrival/departure dates and room type when you register online. A credit card number will be required and will be passed on to the hotel to secure your booking. Your accommodation and incidental costs must be settled direct with the hotel on departure. Please note hotels may charge a surcharge on credit card payments made on departure.

Should you require dates outside of the main Congress dates, please note this in your booking and WALDRONSMITH Management will contact the hotel on your behalf.

Please note the check in time is generally 1400 hours. If you require immediate access to your room prior to this time, it may be wise to pre-register for the evening before. If you are arriving after 1800 hours please note this accordingly.

The hotels impose strict release dates of 30 days prior to arrival and therefore any bookings made after the 13 April 2018 will be subject to availability. Please note cancelled bookings or failure to arrive at the hotel on the designated date of arrival (no-show) will incur penalties. See details below before making your selection.

Any changes to your booking must be made via email to WALDRONSMITH Management – not direct with the hotel.

All room rates noted are based on room only, unless otherwise specified, and are in New Zealand Dollars.

Each hotel has specific penalties for cancellations, no-shows or reduction of dates which should be considered when making your booking.
