Hey all, Here is what we have come up with and need to get a yes or no answer from you all. The facts so far are as follows:


Venue: Hamilton Island Resort, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia.


Dates: 21 - 25th March 2005


Seminars - Total of approx 15 seminars per day x 5 days = 75 seminars to choose from. Includes safety, operations, different sectors of the industry, legal, marketing, basically there are seminars to cover all areas of the civil helo industry.


Costs: Registration Fee is currently around $1400 Aussie Dollars but working on reducing this to around $1200 Aussie dollars. This includes.


* Access to all seminars.

* All your breakfasts.

* All Morning Teas

* All Lunches

* All Afternoon Teas

* All Dinners except for one evening.

* Four evening functions, dinner & Drinks.

* All Alcohol at all evening functions.

* Half Day trip out to Reefworld to snorkel and dive on the Hardy Reef.

* Attendee Bag with shirt, cap, goodies etc.


Accommodation: Five night accom package for $1000 Aussie Dollars.


Airline discounts are being worked on as we speak.


So tell me would you personally attend this event. A simple yes or no would be appreciated. We are trying to make this a must not miss event and something we can do every couple of years just to bring the industry together to network in a great casual location.


Look forward to your replies of yes or no.

So this is what we have so far. Its a pretty full on schedule for the week and the reason for the half day trip to the reef was to break it up and make it not so full on for the whole week, besides its a great chance to enjoy the benefits and wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.


Comments Welcome.

Don - No the cost would be the same, its a per room cost, no need to share with anyone else.

P.S. If all goes to plan I hope to have the registration fee down to $750 USD thanks to our sponsors which will be about $500 USD, basically $100 USD per day and that is a real bargain.
