A PREDICT members dinner will be held on Thursday evening 9/3/17 at The Seamstress Restaurant & Bar in the City, at 113 Lonsdale St, Melbourne. This restaurant offers modern Asian cuisine and we have secured a banquet for $65pp.  Our table is booked for 7.45pm.  Please indicate if you will be attending the dinner via Trybooking (see “Registration” for details).

Payment of $80 per person (which allows $15 for drinks) must be made prior to the dinner as we will be charged for the number booked, regardless of numbers attending on the night. The deadline for payment is 8/3/17.  New Zealand members to pay Marian or Cate on the night with the correct money please.  Again, no shows will still be charged so it is really important that you are planning to attend if you have indicated that on the Trybooking registration.


PREDICT will cover the costs of accommodation and airfare for all eligible attendees.  Lunch, morning and afternoon tea will be provided on the day however additional meals (including breakfast) WILL NOT be provided or reimbursed.

Taxis:  PREDICT will reimburse the cost of taxi fares from Tullamarine Airport to RCH and return but fares from home to the airport and return WILL NOT be reimbursed. We encourage you to use maxi cabs on the trip from RCH to Tullamarine.  Marian will have cabcharge vouchers available on the day for this purpose.

Airport parking: Fees WILL NOT be reimbursed.

We appreciate your understanding regarding the reimbursement of costs for this event as the budget is very tight at this stage.
