COSA 2017November 13 - 15, 2017

Trainees Weekend Accommodation

The conference will secure a range of accommodation options for delegates at a discounted conference delegate rate. Accommodation bookings will open in 2017. As Sydney accommodation runs at a high occupancy rate year round we strongly suggest booking early to save missing out or high accommodation rates.

To ensure you receive the discounted conference accommodation rate and terms and conditions you MUST book through your registration profile - NOT direct with the hotel. Any bookings made direct with the hotel or through third party booking agents cannot be guaranteed to have the same rate or inclusions by the conference. 

Check-in times: Rooms are not guaranteed available until 2:00 pm on the day of check-in, though can be made available earlier in the day at the discretion of the hotel itself. If you wish to ensure an early check-in, you should reserve the room for the previous night.

CONFIRMATION: Once you have booked and paid for your accommodation in full via your online Currinda profile you will receive a registration confirmation which shows your accommodation booking summary - this is your accommodation confirmation. The reservation will be under your surname (family name), this is all the information you need upon check in.

Cancellations: Cancellation policies apply to each hotel and usually apply when cancellations are made within 30 days of arrival. Rooms cancelled within 30 days of the conference will generally be charged the full price of the total accommodation booked. Please contact the secretariat if you wish to cancel your stay and would like to know the cancellation policy.

Security deposit upon check in: Credit card details will be requested from all guests on arrival. The deposit is to cover any miscellaneous charges.

* The hotels require full prepayment of your stay at least 45 days prior to your arrival date to secure your accommodation booking. Only incidental charges must be paid by the delegates directly to the hotel when checking out.

* If you are attending both the Trainee Weekend and the main COSA ASM, please make your booking through your COSA ASM Registration to avoid double booking.
