The ESC Congress 2014 , organized by the European Society of Cardiology is a congress celebrated in Barcelona from the 30th August to the 3rd September and is probably the most anticipated science of the year.
The congress, held in Fira Gran Via, brings in cardiology specialists from over 100 countries which will be presenting over 11.400 abstracts to share their developments and show them to the world.
This year, the ESC Congress focuses on innovations in scientific discovery so that assistants can keep up to date with the quick evolution of discoveries related to cardiovascular diseases worldwide, concentrating on clinical practice, education, technology and applications to clinical care.
To do so, the congress has three big sections. The first is Hot Lines, sessions where primary endpoints of novel clinical trials are presented for the first time. On the other hand, Clinical Trial Updates, as the name suggests, is a section where previously presented data can be modified or expanded. Last but not least, the Registries sessions are held to present new Registries and new data that has not yet been presented.
This is a great opportunity for experts in cardiology from all over Europe and around the rest of the world to catch up on the latest developments and to share knowledge in order to make their job better and easier.
To register you can either do it on-site or in advance, just bear in mind registries have different prices depending on dates and the time of purchase. So if you don’t want to wait you can get book your ticket.
The ESC Congress is held in the Fira de Barcelona in Gran Via, located in Hospitalet de Llobregat, right next to Barcelona.
You can get there by:
Bus: Lines 72 & 79
Train: Lines S8, S33, R6, R5, S4
As the ESC Congress is held in Fira l’Hospitalet, a location quite far away from the city, we recommend apartments that are well located so that transport to the Congress has no complications.
Probably the best option is to book an apartment in Plaza España, which is 20 minutes away from both FIRA Hospitalet and the city center.
Espai Barcelona has 5 modern apartments in this location that might do the trick.
