Accommodation: As noted elsewhere the conference will take place at Copthorne Hotel and Resort Bay of Islands, Waitangi, NZ from Monday, November 27–Friday, 1 December, 2023. Registrants are expected to arrange their own accomodation. The number of rooms available at the hotel is limited because of renovations. The conference room rates are as per below. The best way to book a room at the conference hotel is by using the hotel website. Important: Once you have selected the conference dates for the hotel it will seem as though all the rooms are booked—this is currently not the case. You need to click on "CODES AND OPTIONS" link on the right side of your screen, enter the code IBSAR23 in the "Group Code" line and click on the black "UPDATE RESULTS" button— see the picture below.

Alternatively you can email and request a booking. You will need to specify the room type and bed type, the nights you need, and either quote reference number 9451665 or include the information this is for the BOI conference.

There are also a number of hotels available nearby in Paihia, which is an easy 2 km walk from the conference hotel.
