Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the 2020 Conference in Adelaide?
The District is committed to making events available to all members of District 73 and with this in mind we aim to circulate the Conference between our 3 states. The last time Adelaide hosted the District 73 Conference was in 2016. Any club can submit a bid to host the 2021 Conference - focus on the future...
You can get there by plane, boat, train, tram, bus, bike or feet!
Is there a discounted accommodation price for Toastmasters to stay at the Pullman Adelaide?
Accommodation packages are not part of the conference package negotiated with the Pullman. Please visit the hotel's website for current room rates. See the Accommodation tab for details.
Are there any other accommodation options near the venue?
There are lots of different options to suit all budgets and lifestyles very close to the venue. See the accommodation tab for some options or feel free to search your own - there is no requirement to stay anywhere in particular although staying as close to the venue as possible is best as you will be busy at the conference and hopping back and forth from accommodation can be wearing!
What is on the menu?
The menu has not yet been finalised, when it is, this section of the FAQs will be updated.
I have a food allergy or intolerance, who do I tell?
Please include this information when registering for the event and we will advise the venue.
Why is there is no alcohol included?
It is against District 73's policies to include beverage packages in District event tickets. This was introduced in 2017 in response to requests to keep overall ticket prices down and to ensure prices are fair for all who attend District events.
Alcohol will be available to purchase at the Friday welcome event and the Gala Dinner.
