Host City and Venue
The Rutherford Hotel is Nelson’s only 24-hour fully-serviced hotel, offering luxurious rooms and suites – ideal for corporate travellers, families and meeting delegates. Its central location means Nelson’s many galleries and city attractions are just a stone’s throw away. All rooms have a view of the harbour, city, historic South Street or Nelson’s beautiful cathedral.
Meeting rates have been obtained, and will be published via this website in the near future. You will have the opportunity to book your accommodation via the online registration process, and will be asked to supply credit card details to secure your booking. It is strongly recommended that you book your accommodation prior to 2 July 2017 to ensure you gain the negotiated rates.
