Early bird booking now open

Following the huge success of ARITA's Small-Medium Practice (SMP) Conference in Port Douglas in 2018, the 2019 SMP Conference will be held at the picturesque Hamilton Island on 21-22 March.

Focused on topics tailored to senior practitioners in smaller practices with 1-5 partners, and developed and delivered by practitioners for practitioners, the conference will run over two full days. The program will combine highly relevant presentations, panel discussions and interactive, workshop-style sessions intermingled with plenty of networking opportunities in the professional yet relaxed atmosphere that only a destination event can offer.

A variety of accommodation options are available at The Reef View Hotel, including special reduced rates for ARITA delegates for standard rooms - price includes 2 adults and 2 children under 12. The rate is available until 18 February 2019 so book early to avoid disappointment (link at the bottom of the page).

The centrally-located hotel ensures guests will be just a stone's throw away from the Conference venue (Endeavour Room at Catseye Beach) plus all the major attractions of the island including complimentary water activities at Catseye Beach, the Marina for access to tours of The Great Barrier Reef, and a dozen restaurants and eateries. 

Why not hire a buggy to explore the island at your own pace. Regular shuttle buses are also available to transport you around this stunning location.

The conference fee includes two networking events: the Welcome Reception on Wednesday 20 March for delegates to mingle with each other informally over drinks and canapes before the Conference starts, and the Conference Dinner on Thursday 21 March (venues to be announced). Guest tickets are available at both networking events for partners to also attend.

Due to less frequent flights to and from Hamilton Island, please note outgoing flights are only available until early afternoon each day.

We would therefore recommend you book to stay three nights (20-23 March) at this fantastic location, departing no earlier than the Saturday morning after the Conference, to ensure you don't miss any of the sessions and speakers on day two. We hope you will also consider staying longer to enjoy everything Hamilton Island has to offer visitors.

The special rate of $300 per night for ARITA delegates in Reef View Standard Rooms will only be available until 18 February 2019.
