Should a delegate be unable to attend a prompt refund of registration fees (less $25 + GST service charge) will be made for cancellations received in writing by Wednesday 6 September 2000. After this date we regret that no refunds will be made. However delegate substitutions are permitted up to and including the day of the conference. Please inform the Conference Manager of any such substitutions.

Dress Code:
Smart casual or business attire is standard dress at HRINZ conferences for the conference sessions. Dress comfortably. The venues are all air conditioned so you might want to include a jacket or sweater.

The Welcome Reception and Cocktails will be a bit 'swept-up', so business attire is probably most suitable.

The Gala Dinner and Theme Party will be semi-formal and we recommend 'After Five' attire, or full fancy dress ('Space' is the theme). We'll provide masks and antennae to the more inhibited. After dinner all dress codes will go out the door as ties get loosened, shoes are kicked off and the dancing begins……

Wellington will be in 'early Spring' which could mean lovely fine days (14 to 18 degrees) and cool evenings (9 to 13 degrees), or it could be pouring with rain and blowing a gale with an unbelievable wind chill factor. It will be very hard to predict exactly what the weather will be like, so we recommend that you bring a good top coat to meet your needs. Some events are within a very short stroll of most hotels and the Convention Centre, so you probably won't need to use taxis, unless the weather is really bad.
