Accommodation Comment from Hello Gold Coast
"Our grateful thanks to all those who used the Hello Gold Coast accommodation booking service in 2013. We look forward to being able to help again next year. If you didn't book through us in 2013 please do consider us next year. We can match any direct booking discount offered. Total sponsorship of the 2013 congress from accommodation commissions was $3647 so it does make a difference. Note we can take bookings for any time of year so please try us if you are holidaying on the Gold Coast."
Please, where possible, make your Congress accommodation bookings through Leisurecom (phone 1300 244 348) or call Fred Whitaker on 0417 002 089 or email him at email@example.com. Gold Coast Bridge Congress receives significant sponsorship resulting from these bookings and it just needs everyone to help by booking through Leisurecom. If you are offered a discount of up to 10% for booking direct with an accommodation provider please call Fred on 0417 002 089 - it is likely we can match that and still have a bit left over for Congress funds. If we can't match a price you are offered by a particular provider, that is fine and thanks for checking with us.
