Top 10 Shortlead.com.au FAQs
1. What is Shortlead.com.au?
Shortlead.com.au is one of Australasia's largest web portals that allows you to check online conference room availability & catering package rates, as well as research detailed venue information, images, brochures & floor plans.
With over 800 venues listed across Australia & the Pacific, Shortlead makes organising your next event easy.
The team here at Shortlead.com.au can also assist in organising your group accommodation, entertainment, trainers, team building, guest speakers, transport, theming & offsite events.
2. Is Shortlead.com.au a free service?
Yes! At no point will you be charged a fee. Shortlead.com.au is paid a 'finder's fee' or marketing fee by venues which in no way affects the prices that are quoted to you. This allows us to offer our services to you at no cost. In fact, our buying power with venues often means that the prices quoted to you are cheaper than those advertised - sometimes up to 40% off!
3. How do I submit a conference enquiry through Shortlead.com.au?
To ensure that you are quoted the great rates advertised on Shortlead.com.au, simply submit a conference enquiry by utilising our easy-to-use, 3 step online search facility. Alternatively, call the Shortlead Help Desk on 1300 79 20 30 and you will be assigned an Account Manager who will take your conference enquiry.
4. How do I submit my enquiry to multiple venues?
If you are submitting your enquiry via the website, after submitting your initial enquiry you will be prompted to submit another. Click on this button and your event requirements will be saved, allowing you to submit the same enquiry to multiple venues and locations, without having to retype the information.
5. When and how do I receive my conference quotations?
After submitting your enquiry, you will be contacted by a Shortlead Account Manager who will request any further information, including your required turn-around time. The team at Shortlead will then compile and email to you a cost comparison, which will enable you to compare the rates offered by the available venues who meet your requirements.
6. What do the 'Hot Deal' logo, 'Value Plus' logo and the gold stars represent?
An important aspect of Shortlead.com.au is the ability for venues to display special offers which give you even more value for money. The 'Hot Deal' logo indicates that a venue is offering a special deal for a given period. 'Value Plus' is an incentive which is offered in addition to the regular inclusions of a package. When you see gold stars beside a venue's name, it means that they are offering Shortlead.com.au customers a rate lower than their full advertised rate.
7. Am I obligated to the venues once I submit an enquiry?
No. There is no obligation on your part until you have signed a contract and made a deposit with your preferred venue.
8. What if I want a conference quote from a venue or location that is not listed on Shortlead.com.au?

9. What if I do multiple events throughout the year and want an Account Manager to manage my enquiries?
