About the Congress

ESC Congress 2020


Amsterdam, The Netherlands


ESC Congress brings together more than 33,000 dedicated colleagues to share, challenge and learn from each other.

Under one roof – over five days - the Congress Programme Committee assembles the very latest cardiovascular science and innovation. Where else can you find more than 500 sessions and 4,500 presentations with such a world-renowned faculty?

And you can choose from a range of educational formats: Late-Breaking Science Sessions, Case-Based Sessions, Guidelines Presentations, and two rapidly growing favourites: How Should I Treat, and the Focus with the Experts Sessions.

The Spotlight theme for ESC Congress 2020 is “The Cutting Edge of Cardiology”, featuring specific sessions on the latest technology in clinical cardiology available today and on the horizon.

ESC Congress, beyond its commitment for excellence in science and education, is an opportunity to inspire. It is first and foremost a celebration of discovery unlike any other.

In this context, it is not surprising that so many healthcare professionals are drawn to this congress year after year: an event where they can interact and network with colleagues from more than 150 countries.

And through it all there is one, common, overriding goal: to expand the boundaries of cardiovascular medicine so that millions of more people can lead longer, healthier lives.

We thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam.
