20th Interventional Cardiology Symposium

Presented by the Montreal Heart Institute

Dear Colleagues,

The annual Interventional Cardiology Symposium is proud to celebrate 20 years of offering a forum for discussion and discovery for professionals in the field. We hope to see you in large numbers this year to recognize our success and to share in the promise of enriching meetings to come.

Taking place June 16, 17 & 18, 2011 in Montreal, the 20th edition of the Symposium features invited presentations by leading cardiologists from North America, Europe and Asia, bringing to light the very latest developments and innovations. As in the past, live cases will form an integral part of the program, broadcast directly from the Montréal Heart Institute, Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina and the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, located in Toronto.

In addition to being classed one of top cities in the world for international conventions, Montréal offers a vibrant and welcoming location for delegates. From gastronomic delights for all tastes to a plethora of cultural and sports events, unique architectural styling covering 375 years of history plus an exciting nightlife, our city invites you to make the most of your time with us.

We look forward to seeing you here!
