Announcing the Conflux 13 venue!

This year Conflux 13 will be trying out a new venue! We’ll be heading out to the brand new hotel Vibe, located just next to the Canberra airport.

There is paid parking close by, with free parking available on Beltana Road in nearby Piallago if you don’t mind a 5 minute walk. It’s a 12 minute drive to the centre of Canberra.

Vibe are offering rooms for Conflux members at $169 per night, room only, from Thursday 28 September through to Tuesday 3 October. You can book your rooms online: just visit this Hotel Vibe booking link and use the login code TH9414956.

Important stuff: yes there’s a bar. It’s even got a fireplace.

And we’ve tried the coffee. It’s pretty good. And reasonably quick. So their baristas know what they’re doing.

Here’s a map, too:

Any other questions? Let us know! We’ll try & answer them for you in the comments.

See you there!

Full house – Conflux 9 dealers room

The Conflux 9/Natcon 2013 Dealers Room is now FULL!

The Market Day on Saturday, 27 April remains an option for those who missed out. If there’s enough call for it, we’ll consider moving the dealers to a bigger room, but you need to email president [dot] conflux [at] gmail [dot] com as soon as possible.

Full details are available on the Dealers page.


Rydges Link

Hi there

The link to online booking with Rydges is currently down. We have put in a call and hope to have it repaired soon. You can still ring and book your rooms using the reference number. The online booking form allows you to reserve rooms by leaving your credit card details, but will not charge your credit card now.

We will let you know when it is up and running again.

Updated venue information


Further venue information and a booking reference number has been added to the venue page. It is okay to book now. Don’t wait to reserve your room. You can use your credit card to secure your booking over the phone without charge. Don’t worry if your card is going to expire before Conflux 2013 because you can update it closer to the convention time with the new card number and expiry date.

We don’t have the rooms blocked out. We have to make sure we book them. So if you want the venue to ourselves (and it’s not that big) then book away. We have to share with Qantas, but I’m not picky.

I’ve booked the Embassy Suite because I like to spoil myself.
