Where is our Accommodation Located?
You will be staying at the Sofitel Broadbeach, 81 Surf Parade, Gold Coast QLD 4218. The Sofitel is a 5 Star luxury hotel. More info can be found here http://www.sofitelgoldcoast.com.au/gold-coast-resort.html
Can I choose who I room with at Pole Festival?
Sure! We will ask you to select your room buddy closer to the event. If you don’t know who you will room with, or don’t know anyone else going to Pole Fest (erhem, maybe it is time to get some new friends!) then don’t stress, we will allocate you with a cool new pole buddy to room with. The reason we are waiting until closer to the event to ask for your room mate is because things can change so much in a few months time, and this saves us chasing up changes and things. This will make the registration process much smoother for you as well.
Can I change my room once it has been allocated?
We are spending lots of time making sure that Pole Fest is the most Epic pole weekend away you have ever and will ever have! So unless there is a major issue (catastrophic friendship/ relationship bust-up, severe injury, illness etc) then please just stick with the roomie we have allocated you to (which in most cases will be the one you have chosen yourself) and don’t fret! You are going to have an awesome time! The room is just for sleeping in after all!
I have special dietary requirements, will there be food that caters to this?
Sure! We will ask you for this important information closer to the event. All dietary needs can be catered for.
What facilities are available at The Sofitel Broadbeach?
The resort is fantastic! It has a gorgeous pool beside the restaurant and all rooms have a balcony. Check out our amazing hotel here: http://www.polefestival.com.au/venue/
What time can I check in to the hotel?
Hotel check in commences at 12pm on Thursday 13th October. Please meet at the Pole Festival Meet & Greet table in the lobby where we will register your arrival and give you your goodie bag and information pack. We will announce further details closer to the event.
What can I buy from the markets?
Great question! But more to the point…what can’t you buy from the Pole Fest markets???
Firstly there will be plenty of opportunity to purchase merch from your instructors…no rushing to grab hotpants in between workshops, the stalls will be set up and staffed for the weekend so you can shop when it suits you.
Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for stall holders, but you expect to be able to buy whatever your little pole-loving-heart desires, including shoes, grip aid, clothes, costumes, stickers, DVD’s, posters and more!
