This message is to bring you up to date with the situation in Barcelona and the arrangements we have made. 

We can assure you that we are carefully monitoring the situation and that the congress organisation is running smoothly and without any problems. We are in close contact with official authorities in Barcelona to react flexibly and quickly to be able to adapt to unexpected challenges. We have been informed, that a demonstration will happen on Friday, October 18 afternoon. Limited public transportation services and delays at the motorway are announced on that day. UEG has arranged hostesses at the airport arrival terminals to guide all delegates to public transportation. According to our local partners, access to hotels will be possible at all times, for hotels around the announced demonstration, delegates eventually might have a longer walkway to consider. For Saturday onwards we don't expect any limitations for public transportation services. Announced demonstrations will not take place in the vicinity of the congress venue. We recommend to exercise caution when you are in the vicinity of large protests or demonstrations. Further information on flights and public transport:
