Pre-Congress notice, from The British Vegetarian, Jan/Feb 1963:
I.V.U. SPANISH CONGRESS
The International Vegetarian Union's World Congress, at Barcelona,
postponed in 1962 because of the smallpox outbreak, is now fixed for
June 23rd-29th, 1963. The 23rd is a Sunday, and registration will open
in the morning-foreign visitors are advised to arrive on the Saturday,
June 22nd, and arrange to leave on the 30th, a Sunday.
The civic authorities, who are endeavouring to make Barcelona a centre for international congresses, are co-operating, and it is expected that we shall have the use of a splendid new pavilion equipped with the most modern simultaneous translation system.
Spain can be relied upon to provide perfect weather, and the occasion
should be of enormous interest to all attending.
Delegates are asked to make their own travel arrangements. though Academy
Travel Ltd. (see advertisement) may be organising a party or parties
for British visitors.
Preliminary details and application forms may be obtained from: The
International Vegetarian Union, Bank Square, Wilmslow, Cheshire.
