About the congress

ESC Asia with APSC & AFC


The three renowned cardiovascular societies bring together the latest in cutting-edge cardiovascular science, with an Asia-Pacific focus.



This exciting event is the perfect follow-up to ESC Congress, revisiting the key sessions presented in an Asian Pacific context.

Sessions feature key opinion leaders from Europe and the Asia Pacific region as speakers and chairpersons.





  • Review the latest ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines in a regional clinical context and how to implement them in your practice
  • Discuss the presentations with European colleagues
  • Develop your practical skills with hands-on sessions, workshops and clinical cases
  • Discover new science through the abstract programme highlighting the excellence from the region


ESC-Asia-APSC-AFC-2019-speakers-talking-shaking-hands-singapore.jpgAttendees are to exchange ideas with their European colleagues during highlight sessions on prevention, imaging, arrhythmias, heart failure, intervention and much more. 

The congress provides an exciting return to meeting face to face and enjoying the thrill of discovering, learning, and sharing together in-person, whilst following all the latest public health requirements for your comfort and safety.


We look forward to welcoming you again, in Singapore, from 30 November to 2 December 2023.
