How To Book Accommodation
As of Wednesday 14 September, delegates will need to make their own accommodation reservations directly with their chosen hotel.  Arinex are no longer able to book accommodation as part of your online registration form.  Please use this link to contact the hotels listed above.

Rooms are being held by the Summit Managers on behalf of the attendees until Friday 26 August 2011.  All hotel accommodation bookings must be accompanied by a minimum one night’s room rate or credit card details in order to secure a reservation. The Summit Managers will accept accommodation deposits up until Friday 26 August 2011, which they will pass on to the hotel on your behalf.  Attendees must settle the balance of their account with the hotel concerned upon check out.

Late bookings can be made through the Summit Managers after Friday 26 August 2011 and up until Tuesday 13 September 2011, but are subject to availability and credit card details are required to secure the reservation. One night’s room rate will be deducted from the supplied card, by the hotel, if the reservation is cancelled or the delegate fails to arrive on the specified date.

Change of Booking
Any change to a reservation must be notified to the Summit Managers and not directly to the hotel.  Please note that any changes should be made to the Summit Managers by Wednesday 14 September 2011.

Late Arrivals
Please indicate on your registration form or notify the Summit Managers in writing if you will arrive at your hotel after 18:00 hrs, failure to do so may mean that your room will be released.

Check-in and Check-out times
Check-in time is generally 14:00 hrs and check-out time is 11:00 hrs.  Should you wish to guarantee check-in before 14:00 hrs you will need to pre-book, and pay for the previous night.  If you wish to guarantee a late checkout you will need to book for the next night.  These additional nights can be booked at the time of making your reservation. If required please indicate on your registration form.

Hotel Check-in Procedures
As per standard hotel policies and procedures, attendees will be required to provide a credit card or full cash payment upon check-in. This is to cover any incidental charges incurred during your stay and all remaining unpaid room nights, regardless of whether your booking was guaranteed by a deposit to secure your booking. 

The hotel will hold on your credit card, until point of check-out, all unpaid accommodation nights reserved plus a daily amount for incidental charges. If you will be settling your accommodation account by cash you will be asked to pre pay for your accommodation in full plus a cash deposit for incidentals. 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. 

Group Bookings
If your organisation would like to make a group booking or place a group booking at hotels not listed on this website the Summit Managers can secure rooms and negotiate group rates on your behalf with the hotel of your choice. With a large network of hotel contacts our experienced staff are able to ensure all your needs are met and your booking is managed efficiently.

For all bookings that have been paid in full, please note if you do not arrive at the hotel on the specified date the hotel will hold the room for each paid night and all monies will be retained by the hotel.
