As we hurtle inexorably towards our 2018 annual Convention now less than three months away, your Convention Committee has been working hard to ensure that your event comes to fruition as smoothly as possible with the aim of creating an exceptional experience for all.
You will have noticed whilst exploring the Convention website that your Convention Committee has secured two Primary Hotels for which discounts have been made available:
Intercontinental Hotel has a great offer of 14.5% off the Standard-Rate. There are several King Guest Rooms allocated to Convention delegates available, so why not book now to take advantage of this great offer.
Holiday Inn Express | $150 per night for twin share room, with breakfast included ($75 p/p).
Both hotels are within walking distance from the free tram that stops on Victoria Square, a short walk back to the Town Hall.
I have been in touch with the guys from Instant Classic, our headline quartet and 2015 International Quartet Champions, who are super excited to be joining us in Adelaide to celebrate Australian Barbershop. David, Theo, Kohl and Kyle will be busy during their week-long stay performing at the Rundle Mall Massed Sing, Welcome Gala and Grand Showcase Concert as well as running the Youth Workshop and Sing with the Champs, and joining the Harmony Academy Faculty to deliver an awesome Barbershop educational event. Instant Classic’s participation will certainly be a highlight of the Convention.
If your Club administration is arranging registration on your behalf, but you also want to register for Harmony Academy, attend the Sunday farewell lunch or purchase tickets for friends and family to attend the Contests and the Saturday Night Grand Showcase, all you need to do to book these events is go to Registration on the main menu banner on the Convention website and select Add Optional Extras which will then enable you to purchase any additional tickets you need. As the Sunday and Wednesday programs are much shorter with limited content compared to the other days, we have not created the ability to purchase individual day passes for those days, however, there will be activities happening and we don’t want you to miss out, so you will be able to come to those sessions free of charge if you purchase tickets for the Monday and Tuesday (note also that the day passes also cover meals). The four-day price of $340 also covers accommodation and transport if required so it’s extremely good value for money.
Early Bird registrations close on 30 June 2018, so make sure you register now to take advantage of our special discounts.
Not too many more sleeps to go now!
Hope to see you all there
