About the Venue and Accommodation:
The convention was held at Hotel Chateau on the Park in Christchurch.  Accommodation was available at the hotel and alternative accomodation was available within walking distance of the hotel.  All workshops, meetings and social events were held at the Hotel Chateau on the Park.
A unique escape nestled in 5 acres of beautiful, tranquil gardens, the Chateau on the Park offers peaceful hotel accommodation in Christchurch, South Island of New Zealand that seems a world away from the stresses of daily life - located just minutes away from the Entertainment Arenas, Westfield Shopping Mall in Riccarton and the Addington business and night-life district plus the Casino.
The Chateau on the Park is one of the most popular venues in Christchurch to hold a conference or event and offers plenty of free off-street parking, excellent cuisine, and nearly 200 accommodation rooms; located over the road from Hagley Park.
The dedicated Conference venue forms one entire wing of the Chateau’s medieval themed buildings and banquet hall, and fully interconnects with the accommodation wings by interior walkways that pass through tranquil garden greenery and beside the hotel’s own medieval and fish-stocked moat.
