CIPS Australasia Conference and Supply Management Awards - Update: 31 March 2020

CIPS and Haymarket Media Group (who deliver events on behalf of the CIPS) continue to follow the guidelines set out by the local government and are closely monitoring the situation with regard to Coronavirus on a daily basis. The welfare of our event attendees is always front of mind. Based on current local government advice, we are exploring all the available options, with regards to this event. We appreciate this is a difficult time for all. Our intention is to offer you support and keep you updated on the event’s position during these unprecedented times, whilst we continue to work to deliver the best event experience for you.

If you have any questions, please contact us. You can review Haymarket Media Group's Coronavirus Policy and booking term revisions for all CIPS events.



Q: How do I pay for the conference?

A: You can choose to pay by credit card or invoice at the checkout page. If your company uses purchase order numbers, please have the number ready when you book, as invoices are generated automatically.

We are unable to accept payments by invoice from Monday 1 July 2019. Any delegates registering after Monday 1 July 2019 must register and pay with a valid credit card.

Q: Do I get a preferential rate as a CIPS member?

A: Yes, your membership number will be checked and verified by CIPS. Delegates with expired or suspended memberships will be contacted by CIPS to renew membership. Please note that delegates who do not renew their membership within 10 days of being contacted by CIPS will be charged the equivalent non-member rate. Please note that we must receive full payment prior to the event start date.

Q: I don’t have my Purchase Order number yet. Can I still register for the conference?

A: Yes – please put your initials in the box (rather than your PO number) and then email [email protected] once you have it. You will then be sent a revised invoice with the PO number attached.

Q: Who should I make the Purchase Order out to?

A: Haymarket Media Group Limited.
