MSA2017 is being held at the Brisbane Convention Centre in the stunning South Bank area of Brisbane, Australia. As a popular location for tourists and business travelers, there are many accommodation options nearby for delegates to book. The MSA has made arrangements including discounted rates with a variety of facilities as below:

Rydges South Bank: 

This Hotel is virtually next door and has direct access to the conference venue, the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC).  This is also the most luxurious hotel on offer and the most expensive. We recommend this hotel for those delegates who have mobility concerns or prefer a 5 star Hotel experience.
