About the Congress

ESC Congress 2019 together with World Congress of Cardiology



Join us in Paris this coming August for a very special edition of ESC Congress, which will be held together with the World Congress of Cardiology.
The spotlight of this event will be Global Cardiovascular Health, highlighting differences in prevalence, clinical manifestations, prevention strategies, diagnostic modalities and management of cardiovascular diseases around the world.


The congress will focus on the best and latest science with renowned leaders in cardiovascular medicine. Once again, we expect more than 30,000 delegates – the largest such gathering in the world – and to showcase more than 500 sessions during the five-day conference.

It is the one professional event you cannot afford to miss.

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, the newly designed and central venue in the city, for what promises to be an unforgettable ESC Congress together with World Congress of Cardiology.

See you there!
