Ok, got it
I am sad to inform you that ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020, the scientific congress of the European Association for Preventive Cardiology scheduled for 2-4 April in Malaga, is cancelled.
The ESC and EAPC leadership have been following closely the rapid spread of COVID-19 and its impact. Increasingly severe measures are being put in place to limit the spread of the virus as physicians and hospitals deal with a pandemic.
More than 50% of our congress faculty has informed us that they will be unable to attend – and that number will only grow. With so many of you on the front lines of the current health crisis, we know you have other priorities and we offer our support and solidarity to all of you.
As I write this message, it is unclear what additional measures the Spanish Government will impose on the city of Malaga. Events of more than 1,000 are already banned in Madrid, parts of the Basque country and La Rioja.
Given our inability to assure a faculty presence, coupled with more elaborate restrictions in Spain, and of course the health of our faculty, delegates and staff, cancelling our congress is the only responsible course of action.
We are now discussing how we will move forward. We will keep you updated as information becomes available.

On behalf of the EAPC Executive Board and the Congress Chair, Prof. Ana Abreu, thank you for your understanding and steadfast support.
Paul DendaleEAPC President 2018 - 2020
It is also the annual congress of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC) of the ESC
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.
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.
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.
Because it is all about the science, we have decided to create new opportunities for cutting edge 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.
