This will be the biggest problem - does AMRA have any alternative venues in consideration for next year? Unless the Whitlam Centre can be used again something like the convention centre at Homebush might be the right choice given it's central location and excellent facilities. Probably an order of magnitude more in hiring cost compared to Liverpool though, but it's got to be much cheaper than using the Darling Harbour convention centre.
Understandable given the smaller size of the venue.
Not that just about covers it - thankyou very much for the info Bill.
