03 Dec EuroEcho-Imaging 2015 Congress press release
Starting 2nd until 5th December 2015, FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre of Seville will host one of this year’s largest international congresses in Spain: the annual medical congress EuroEcho-Imaging 2015. Organised by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), the congress is expected to bring together 3,500 specialists from around the world with an interest in all forms of cardiovascular imaging.
The Mission of EuroEcho-Imaging 2015
The EACVI’s mission is to “promote excellence in the clinical diagnosis, research, technical development and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe”. Over the years, the medical congress EuroEcho-Imaging 2015 has kept growing in size and has become the leading congress for cardiovascular imaging in the world. The main themes of this year’s event are cardiomyopathies and early diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.
The aim of EuroEcho-Imaging 2015 is the creation of an exciting Forum in which doctors and scientists can present and discuss their latest research and clinical findings in the wider spectrum of echocardiography along with other modalities of cardiovascular imaging.
More medical congresses hosted at Fibes
FIBES Conference and Exhibition Centre of Seville hosted another medical congress earlier this year, also organised by the European Society of Cardiology. From 23rd to 26th May, the centre opened its doors to the Heart Failure 2015 congress, and welcomed over 4,800 specialists in the field. Fibes’ premises were fully occupied by a continuous flow of attendees that had travelled to attend the 4-day event. Delegates pointed to the exceptional quality and design of Fibes’ exhibition area as well as the active poster area that displayed the latest developments and technology in the realm of echocardiography.
A positive impact on Seville’s economy
Once again, Seville has been chosen as the best city to welcome an estimated 8,300 members from both of the ESC’s European congresses. The first, held in May, and this second event currently held in December; a month which – with the exception of the Immaculate Conception Bank Holiday and Christmas – is a low seasonal period in the tourism sector for the city. So this means great benefits to Seville and a very positive impact on sectors such as taxi, hotels, trade, transport, restoration, and more. The two events have made a significantly positive impact estimated at 3.4 million euros on the city’s economy.
On two occasions in 2015, the city of Seville has become a global benchmark in this medical field. And with this, FIBES and the city of Seville become consolidated as the most suitable city and venue respectively to host major conferences, both national and international.
