Parking for conference attendees is complimentary in the hotel lots.
The travel subsidy will be allocated to successful attendees, based on the matrix below. The matrix is based on the one-way distance between the venue and your home. It is not based on the number of kilometres travelled over the course of the conference. For example, if your address is 61 km from the address of the venue, you fall in the 0 -100 km category and will receive $50 to help offset your travel costs. If you live 289 km from the venue, then you will receive $100. Amounts will be distributed as follows:
- 0 - 100 km = $50
- 101 - 200 km = $75
- 201 - 300 km = $100
- 301 - 400 km = $150
- over 400 km = half the cost of the most direct, economical method of travel or $150, whichever is greater. Original receipts must be provided for travel by any means other than car.
Expense forms will be provided at the conference for submission of meal receipts and requesting the travel subsidy.
