Accommodation – Crazy & Ambitious 2

We’re holding rooms at a range of Wellington’s main hotels as Wellington accommodation can sell out quickly. For your convenience, you can book these rooms through registration at the rates below.

To take advantage of these conference rates, bookings must be made during your online registration for the conference. When booking a shared room, please ensure the room is booked by one person only. Please do not contact the hotel directly. If you have any questions, give us a call on +64 4 384 1511.
