Demand for rooms has settled for the moment.
We reached out to all existing hotels for more rooms and they replied that they are sold out unless noted below.
Rooms booked outside the block rate can not be moved into the block so those nights will not qualify for wristbands. Every hotel ended up giving us more block rate rooms than in our contracts and cannot extend the block any further. Staff at the hotel are telling you to contact us to ask to be an exception but please don’t. The hotels have been asked and double-asked by us and they have replied that they have extended the block all that they are prepared to do.
We are still investigating some new hotels however there are rooms left as follows:
Nearly 200 rooms available for every night of the championships plus the days before and after.
Rooms available every night plus before and after the competition days.
Rooms available every night plus before and after.
Rooms available on Tuesday July 1 only (ideal for teachers attending only the convention).
Rooms available on Tuesday July 1 Wednesday July 2 and Sunday July 6 only. Nothing in between and they cannot add more rooms because they are sold out.
Rooms on the 1st 2nd 5th and 6th. Nothing in between. Sold out.
Rooms available on Tuesday July 1 and Sunday July 6. Nothing in between. Sold out.
Sunday July 6 only. Nothing else. Sold out.
Embassy, SpringHill and InterContinental. Sold out. No chance of adding any more rooms.
To answer wristband queries – they will be issued for check-in and check-out days so if someone books in the block for Wednesday and Thursday nights, they will receive wristbands for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
And finally. We will ensure there are enough rooms for everyone to book in the block to avoid the Facility Access Fee. We will not reach a point where we decide to waive the fee for those booking at the last minute.
