Registration FAQs

What Is The 'Online' Registration Dashboard?

The registration dashboard is a unique online system, which provides delegates with an effective and efficient way to register and look after all aspects of the conference themselves prior and post conference. You can revisit your registration dashboard at any time to add social function tickets, add/amend your extras, book or amend your accommodation, make payment or download your invoice.

If you have previously registered for a conference run by ASN, you would have more than likely developed your own 'registration dashboard'. If so, when registering for this conference - please enter your email and password under 'returning delegate', and click on 'VIZBI 2017'.

If you are yet to register for a conference run by ASN - you will need to set up your own registration dashboard and therefore you will need to click on 'register as a new delegate'. Once you have filled out your details, you will have now developed your own 'Registration dashboard'.

How Does The Payment Work?

A secure site is provided for online payment of your charges. This has its own section on the 'dashboard'. The payment options are:

  Credit Cards: Visa or Mastercard. AMEX is accepted but a 3.3% surcharge applies for all AMEX payments.
  Direct Debit: you will receive an email with the banking instructions upon application.
 Cheque: either personal or from your institute.

An Australian Tax Invoice will be provided for all registrants once registered. You can reprint this and your receipt from your 'dashboard' at any time. The ABN for the conference is 90 093 246 176. All rates quoted include GST and are in Australian dollars. All online registrations are checked by the secretariat. If there is any query they will contact you. If you wish to make changes or additions after you have registered, return to your 'dashboard'.

Can I Register More Than One Person At The Time?

If you are a group manager that is arranging registrations for delegates within your organisation, please click here to view registration instructions.

Can I Cancel My Registration?

Cancelling your registration will incur a fee. Cancellation must be made in writing to the conference secretariat. If you have gone ahead and registered, and then changed your mind - please let us know within 24 hours of registering to avoid any cancellation fees. Registration cancellation outside the 30 days prior to the conference, a $100 cancellation fee applies. Registration cancellation within 30 days prior to the conference is a full registration cancellation fee. Please note, if we do not receive payment of the cancellation fee, it may affect your attendance at future conferences run by ASN.
