Many of you will have seen the brochure and other details around the IGCA Congress in Melbourne in October. If not, visit www.igccaustralia2013.com for information. The web booking system for registration is now ready. As indicated, registration is one part of the process and the hotel booking is another. There will be a simple link to the hotel site from our web site so it’s very straight forward.
It seems that weather is the determining factor around the world for business to thrive and Spring started slowly due to challenging weather but most garden centres have had satisfactory Spring trading. The Royal Botanic Gardens in Cranbourne (the Australian Garden) has opened Stage 2 and it will be looking wonderful in October. If you pre-registered at the Congress in Germany then you don’t need to register again but you will need to book the hotel. Special Early Bird offers apply until March 31 for both the hotel and registration. You only need to book the hotel with credit card details – you will pay when you leave. There will be a hotel booking link on our Congress web site shortly.
