About the Congress

ESC Congress 2021 - The Digital Experience, from 27 to 30 August


ESC Congress is first and foremost a celebration of science. It's all about challenging and inspiring cardiovascular professionals to discover and deliver the best care possible to their patients. It’s widely regarded as THE annual cardiology event in the calendar.

An event like no other - bringing together the full spectrum of ground-breaking science and providing during four days exciting new insights and innovation for clinical practice.



Our goal is to deliver to you a unique scientific programme with new ways for you to meet and exchange together. ESC Congress 2021 will use a new intuitive platform that will enable smooth navigation and exceptional interactivity.

ESC Congress, once again, will be the place to be; providing a global stage for your science; a community of peers and an experience; giving you time and opportunity to connect, share and learn with the best and from the best.

New this year! ESC Congress will open on the morning of Friday 27 August and continue for four full days until the evening of Monday 30 August.

To foster the best learning environment we have redesigned some of the session formats to better support your practice and your educational pathway. You can already browse through the programme. It will be complemented later on by the Late-Breaking Science and the new ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines to be revealed LIVE.

We invite you to plan ahead: book your congress days in your agenda and register today for another unforgettable experience.
