Why Your Visit Is Worth It
Cardiology experts from Europe and further abroad have recognized ESC Congress as a must-see event not only to receive the most up-to-date information on practices and research, but as a valuable tool to meet professionals and grow their networks. Let’s take a closer look at the data:
- 32,000 healthcare professionals from 150 countries visit the event;
- 4,500 abstracts presented;
- 500 expert sessions run during the program;
- 400 cardiology topics are on the agenda;
- 200 international exhibitors.
ESC Congress has undergone several changes in terms of scheduling. The very first congress was held back 1950 and in its first four decades occurred once every four years. This all changed in 1988, when it increased its frequency and now the congress is held in a major European city on an annual basis. Previous hosts include Paris, Munich, Stockholm, Amsterdam and London. Rotation is one of its key aspects as it gives a different flavor to the all-encompassing programming and there’s much to see at ESC Congress. Research and development are a main focus and you have a stellar opportunity to present findings in an abstract that introduces you to the right people afterward. As mentioned you have your pick of 500 expert sessions.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
The short answer – just about everyone in the field. ESC Congress has been showing consistent growth over the span of six years. Back in 2012, visitor numbers circled around 27,000 visitors to rise to the current 32,000 visitors. Europe leads the charge when it comes to numbers by nationality as the top countries represented include Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Switzerland, Spain and Sweden. Though we have to mention Asia has a strong presence with China, Japan and India all having sizeable numbers during the last edition. In terms of professional careers, visitors consist of physicians, nurses, engineers, medical technicians, administrators and paramedics.
