Cancellation of EuroPRevent 2016

ESC Press Office Statement

13 April 2016:  The EACPR Board has taken the difficult decision to cancel EuroPRevent 2016 which was scheduled to take place in Istanbul from 5 to 7 May 2016.

Numerous concerns have been expressed by delegates, sponsors, and faculty in the past few weeks, and based on the safety risk we feel this is the most sensible decision.

We apologise for this inconvenience and acknowledge the extraordinary efforts and collaboration of the Turkish Society of Cardiology and the local partners during the preparation of the congress.

Given the importance of spreading the most updated scientific information in cardiovascular prevention throughout our community we are currently exploring our options and will come back to you as soon as possible.
