Twenty three thousand cardiologists converge on the RAI
After a ten year hiatus, Amsterdam is once again set the stage for Europe’s largest medical conference: the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). At the ESC Congress 2023, cardiologists and researchers will join forces with their colleagues, peers, and cardiology heroes, to protect the heart and create the future of cardiology. From 25-28 August, RAI Amsterdam is the central meeting place for approximately over 23,000 onsite and several thousand online.
The ESC Congress is famous as the largest meeting of medical practitioners in Europe and the largest conference covering cardiovascular issues in the world. This year’s spotlight at the ESC Congress will be on heart failure. Many of the problems cardiovascular professionals deal with are either the cause or complications of heart failure, including coronary artery disease, valvular problems, stroke, arrhythmias and sudden death. Heart failure is relevant to all areas of cardiology and beyond, including obesity, diabetes and chronic kidney disease, which is why it makes it such a relevant subject for ESC.
The Amsterdam area an ideal location
The Amsterdam area is an ideal location to host the event and facilitate its many participants. Many world-leading life sciences companies are based here, as well as four world leading research centres. Dennis Speet, Director Amsterdam Convention Bureau: “We are proud to welcome the ESC’s scientists, clinicians, nurses and allied professionals working in all fields of cardiology. These specialists contribute to the knowledge in the Amsterdam Metropole and the Netherlands, overcoming the challenges of the future.”
The RAI is ready
RAI Amsterdam is ready to receive 23,000 cardiology professionals. Maurits van der Sluis, COO RAI Amsterdam: “This is such an important event for the Life Sciences & Health industry, connecting so many professionals that face the enormous challenge of tackling cardiovascular disease. We hope that the many connections and sharing of information breaks new ground for the industry. All the ingredients for a successful cardiology conference are in place. We are ready to make it happen.”
The conference in numbers
Leading scientists will give more than 800 scientific sessions, plenary lectures and seminars on the latest research and clinical trials during the ESC Congress 2023. The 3,752 abstracts accepted from ninety countries will cover more than 100 cardiovascular issues.
