It was just 2 days so flew up on thursday night and met the others in Canberra Airport as they were on a Virgin flight that got in 10minutes after me and we came back together at 5pm Saturday.
We stayed in an apartment hotel that was really great only a 10 minute walk to the conference centre.
The conference itself was mediocre. poor keynote on first day, appalling one at the end, and MC who was sexist and had people up playing games,(why need and MC???? It's not like no-one knew anyone else)
The dinner was at Parliament House and the meal was definitely moderate; The vegetarian lot had a very poor meal of it.
The entertainment and dancing was great (except for said MC) The theme of the night was I love the night life and everyone had party crowns to flashy bow ties.(not many men there )
