About ESC Congress

Come to Munich for the world's largest conference in cardiovascular medicine

We would officially like to welcome you to ESC Congress, which has developed into the world’s largest conference in cardiovascular medicine, with a strong global reputation as an event that provides the latest research findings and their interpretation, in-depth science, and solid education.

The Congress Programme Committee is structuring the finest in science, innovation and research in cardiology into more than 500 sessions and over 4,500 abstract presentations with a world-renowned faculty. In 2018, the Congress Spotlight will be “Valvular Heart Disease” so that the innovative treatments, techniques and ongoing research in this critical field of cardiology will receive particular exposure.

Munich has set up superb conference facilities. Join us there when the world of cardiology comes together.
