We suggest you book directly with the accommodation providers so as to avoid booking fees online.  

IMPORTANT NOTICE RE CONFERENCE TRANSPORT: Clubs New Zealand and the Hornby Club will not be arranging or coordinating airport transfers as part of the 2023 Conference, AGM and Expo.  This decision was made after considering a number of factors including the abundance of transportation options available in Christchurch, the need to redirect resources to other conference activities and reviewing other conferences, events and best practice guidance.

We recommend that clubs investigate transport options such as taxi, uber or hiring/sharing a van with another club in advance, for airport transfer and general use throughout the conference. EZI car rentals have offered a discount for Clubs for the Conference 0800 545 000.

Hornby Club operate a shuttle service from the Club and is available at a cost of $4.00 per person (this is likely to rise to $5, with increased pressure on costs) and will be available between the club and accommodation options listed in the accommodation listing from 3pm on the days of conference. Clubs New Zealand will provide free transport  with a bus service on Saturday & Sunday where delegates are required to move between conference venues & activities.
