COVID-19 Update

The ESC Congress 2022 will take place between August 26 and August 29, 2022. The Fira de Barcelona Gran Via is the event's chosen location. The event will be held in a face-to-face format, with a strict Covid-19 prevention plan in place. The following safety measures will be included in the prevention plan:

  • In the venue's indoor areas, attendees must wear face masks.
  • Attendees are required to maintain a certain social distance (1.5 metres). Certain modifications will be made to the venue to make upholding the regulation easier. Increased corridor space and modified access control will be among the implemented measures. The flow of attendees and the capacity of meeting rooms will also change.
  • Attendees are required to sanitize and disinfect their hands on a regular basis. Hand sanitizing stations and hydro alcoholic gel dispensers will be available at the venue.
  • A new ventilation system will be installed at the venue. Antibacterial filters are one example of this. In addition, the frequency of air renewal will be increased.
  • The capacity and flow of the venue will be controlled by AI-powered cameras. The use of Wi-Fi to track capacity distribution is an example of this.

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.

Industry Relevance

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.
