Why stay at the Hyatt Grand Singapore?

For the best possible experience, ISACA strongly encourages conference delegates to stay at the host hotel. It is the most convenient location for attendees to be able to participate in all conference activities at a negotiated price.

ISACA will never contact you with guest room promotions offering a better deal. With the advent of discount aggregators and housing “pirates,” if you experience a problem with a “pirate” or reservations made through a discount aggregator, ISACA cannot assist you. However, please know that ISACA staff will work with you to resolve issues that may arise if you make your reservation through the ISACA-provided housing registration link.

Every reservation made for those attending CSX Asia Pacific helps ISACA fulfill its commitment to the hotel, in turn allowing ISACA to continue to keep the cost of both conference fees and membership dues as low as possible.


Grand Hyatt Singapore offers valet service and on-site self-parking facilities for 500 vehicles – click here for more details. The Hotel’s multi-story covered car park is accessible via Scotts Road.

ISACA will have a limited number of discounted self-park vouchers available at the registration desk on a first-come, first-serve basis.
