Transcript CONVENTION SCANDAL — HOTEL NAMED Contrary to popular belief, Coventry was not bombed to the ground during the last war. The city is alive and well and readily accessible from most parts of the British Isles and outlying environs such as Europe and the U.S.A. It is also the home of a spanking new hotel called the DE VERE at which the South East Area Convention Committee (SEACON) will host the 1975 Annual British Easter Science Fiction Convention. It was originally hoped that we might be able to find a site on the south coast, thus making it a real sea-con, but as we had feared, the prohibitive rates and limited availability of really large and suitably appointed hotels, made this unfeasible. If you hadn't noticed, conventions are getting larger every year and finding a suitable self-contained convention venue may prove increasingly difficult for successive committees. We must confess we were beginning to despair (three weeks since the TYNECON and we haven't found a hotel yet!) until we hit upon the DE VERE. THE DE VERE,COVENTRY, is certainly the most modern and up-to-date venue ever chosen for an Easter convention. It's so new you won't even find it in the latest Egon Ronay Hotel Guide I To our minds its modern styling fits in well with the forward-looking character of sf. The hotel has a total of 215 bedrooms, all large enough to be counted as twins. All bedrooms have radio, tv, and a private bathroom. Although the basic rooms are sufficiently large to accomodate a couple with one child, there are also a number of extra-large special family rooms (welcome news for family fans who may have found facilities at previous convention hotels limited) and a number of suites-proper (at last a room party which doesn't resemble a London tube in the rush-hour!). The main convention programme and banquet will take place in the hotel's Connaught Suite, a fully air-conditioned hall accomodating over M-00 people. The convention lounge directly adjoins the main convention hall and here you will find the main bar, which will remain open as long as required. Members will also have access to the hotel's own bar which is open to the public during normal hours. The DE VERE has two restaurants. The hotel's prestige restaurant, The Three Spires, has a large a la carte menu as well as a daily table d'hote menu. It offers a three course lunch at £1.75. The Terrace Room, where breakfast will be served, is a cheaper grill restaurant with an attractively priced menu. Full directions for finding the DE VERE will be given in a future progress report. As one of Coventry's largest and most attractive hotels, we don't anticipate you'll find much difficulty. The hotel is a ten-minute walk from the station, conveniently near a main motorway interchange and has a 600-car multi-storey park adjacent.
