The leading international congress on preventive cardiology


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 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.
