The ESC Congress is an annual international congress held in Europe, represents the largest meeting in the world addressing issues in cardiovascular medicine. It is the largest medical meeting in Europe, gathering over 25,000 participants ever year.

The meeting, taking place over five days in 30 lecture theatres, provides a unique forum bringing together all the different disciplines and players involved in cardiology, including doctors, basic scientists, epidemiologists, nurses,  technicians and key opinion leaders.  An advantage  is that it covers both specific issues in the different disciplines as well as broader issues affecting all fields of cardiology.

The congress will provide delegates with great opportunities for education, including “Meet and Read with the Experts“, and for hearing about the latest research. There will  be valuable opportunities  for networking, including finding out about practice in different countries, exchanging ideas and getting to know a range of interesting new people. Let’s not forget our industry partners who will be holding over 80 satellite symposia and workshops and showcasing the latest innovations in pharma  and equipment in what’s probably the world’s  largest medical exhibition centre.

Barcelona is a truly wonderful venue. The city offers an excellent congress centre, good transport links, and is a really interesting place for delegates to take a bit of time out. You have magnificent Gaudi architecture, superb cuisine and a world famous football team. In fact it’s the  perfect mix – that’s so long as you don’t get too distracted from the Congress.
