Hi Low Carb Gold Coast Attendees,

We are getting closer to this event, and everything is on track. Here are some final details.

The program is unchanged and on our event website:


Catering includes welcome drinks at 6 pm on Friday in Pearl’s Bar. There will be some canapes, but you may want to arrange dinner in Terraces Restaurant in the Sheraton (booking advised, call 0755770000). Alternatively there are a range of restaurants and cafes over the road (airbridge) at the adjacent Marina Mirage complex:


At the conference we are providing tea, coffee and water and a few low carb nibbles. Also we are providing lunch on Saturday. Apart from that you need to make your own arrangements.

There will be an informal conference dinner in Terraces Restaurant on Saturday. This will be at the second sitting at 8pm. You will be responsible for your own bills. Booking is essential for this on 0755770000. We will have a space in the restaurant allocated to us.  Good if you can mention you are associated with the Low Carb Gold Coast conference. (If the restaurant booking staff seem confused by this, no matter, as we will sort it out during the day on Saturday).

For those staying at Sheraton Mirage one complimentary breakfast is provided per room. Partners etc are welcome but are responsible for their breakfast bill.

Very much looking forward to meeting you all and hearing a lot of great presentations!
