Barrier Reef Congress – Cancelled for 2020


Barrier Reef Congress – Cancelled for 2020

The QBA has recommended cancelling the event with the risk of the current virus escalating and we are in full agreement.

Please make sure all the people you know that were coming are aware of this development as we may not have contact details for everyone who has entered. Please announce in your clubs.

You will receive a full refund for your entries.

If you paid by bank deposit then please write an email stating the entries you have and your bank account details for the Yeppoon Treasurer to return your funds.

Please be patient as there is a lot of work to complete and please try to resolve issues via email in the first instance

As for accommodation we have found this document from the ACCC (page 10 – cancellation fees) which says that hotels can only charge 10% deposit and can only keep that amount. If they have charged more than 10% it is seen as a pre-payment and is fully refundable.

We hope you are able to recover your accommodation and maybe even your flights as the airlines are reducing capacity and may be cancelling flights.

We are very sorry to not be holding this event and hope to see you all in Sunny Queensland in the not too distant future.

Kim Ellaway
