How do I get from the airport to the Conference Venue?
What can I expect of the Gold Coast?
The Gold Coast is a metropolitan region south of Brisbane on Australia’s east coast. It’s famed for its long sandy beaches, surfing spots and elaborate system of inland canals and waterways.
The weather in September is an average of 23 degrees. It will be sunny, so if you’re staying pre or post Conference, bring your swimmers.
Is there parking available at the venue?
Yes, the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort offer on-site parking for guests. Complimentary off-site parking is available at The Golden Door Spa & Health Club, (73 Seaworld Dr, Main Beach) – and only a short walk 200m along the boardwalk.
How do I pay for my accommodation?
At the time of check in you will be required to place a credit card on file and may be required to pay a deposit. This is to cover any incidentals.
The 11th and 12th September are included for delegates purchasing a FULL REGISTRATION. If you are purchasing a CONFERENCE ONLY REGISTRATION, and decide that you would like to include accommodation, you’ll be able to do this by contacting Leishman Associates.
What is the dress code?
The dress code for the Welcome Event and Conference is smart casual.
The dress code for the Gala Dinner will be “As Long as it’s White, it will be Right for the Night”.
Our final dinner will be relaxed, so interpret our theme however you like. Here’s a few ideas to get you started:
- If Tennis or Cricket is your game that’s ok, although you can probably leave the racket and pads at home.
- Channel a disco vibe like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.
- Ladies, the cost per wear of your wedding dress could decrease substantially.
- Toga Party, but please don’t borrow the sheets from your hotel room.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
What time does the Registration Desk open?
Registration will be open from 12 noon on 11th September 2019
Can I bring a partner along to the Conference Dinner?

Will there be internet available at the Conference?
Yes, the password will be provided on the day.
