About the Congress

ESC Preventive Cardiology, formerly EuroPrevent

ESC Preventive Cardiology is the leading international congress on preventive cardiology and the annual congress of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) of the ESC.



Welcome Address

Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to formally announce the 2020 edition of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology’s showcase congress which will be held in Malaga, Spain from 2 to 4 April 2020.

New Name

Formerly known as EuroPrevent, ESC Preventive Cardiology reflects a new dynamism and coherence in terms of the congress’ positioning within the ESC subspecialty congress family.

New Format

Reshaping the congress format is also part of our strategy. Feedback from delegates have always mattered to us. Based on your recommendations, we have built a new schedule. This will give free rein to new types of sessions to increase the strength of our congress: interaction and networking.

New Content

Because it is all about the science, we have decided to create new opportunities for cuttingedge science. The programme will spotlight some promising abstract presenters in the same way as top senior scientists. For the first time, a call for clinical cases and for late-breaking science will be launched.

For its first edition, ESC Preventive Cardiology will therefore showcase a strong identity, all the while staying true to its original DNA which produced a decade of successful congresses. After 10 editions, it is considered by our peers as the premier international forum in preventive cardiology.

We look forward to meeting you in Malaga.

Once a year leading professionals are invited to share their knowledge on the latest science on key topics providing you with the opportunity to expand your professional understanding in high-quality forums. 

ESC Preventive Cardiology is the European Association of Preventive Cardiology's showcase congress. It’s the most suitable international forum where leading experts from diverse scientific backgrounds in cardiology get together to present their investigations and translate them into tangible take-home knowledge. ESC Preventive Cardiology strives to deliver the latest news and science for allied health professions, cardiologists, general practitioners, policymakers, basic scientists and young researchers. The congress will provide the opportunity to share new findings, to network and to open new educational channels. It is additionally one of the best moments to meet renowned experts and our young cardiologists who are soon to be the future of the field. 

Develop your network

Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits


In 2019, the congress has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 18 European CME credits (ECMEC®s).
