Warning: Fraudulent websites and booking agencies
The symposium industry is confronted with an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate legitimate symposium websites, and booking agencies that are not authorised to make bookings for symposium participants.

Please be aware of possible scams and only use the official Goodfellow Symposium website. Imitation sites and agencies invite symposium participants to supply their personal details including credit card information, in return for a promise to provide travel and accommodation. Unauthorised companies invariably do not deliver anything, despite charging the credit card.

If you have any questions around the legitimacy of a supposed symposium website, or are contacted by any such agency, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or +64 9 360 1240.



Your accommodation booking is made when you register for the Symposium.

Bookings should be made no later than 15 February 2023. After that date no guarantee can be made that rooms will be available.  A credit card guarantee is required to secure your reservation.

  • Early access: If you have an early morning arrival and require an early check-in, you will need to reserve your room for the previous night.
