The 2020 edition of the Heart Rhythm Congress (HRC 2020), which had been scheduled to take place 27–30 September in Birmingham, UK, has been moved to an online platform.
Organisers have taken the decision to host the meeting online, as they have said that it is unclear whether large gatherings will be permitted in September due to ongoing restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In a statement, organisers said: “As we work through this pandemic, we need to emerge stronger and display how, by working in collaboration, we provide support, information and education to our NHS frontline staff so that their studies are not impacted long term by COVID-19. Together we can make the digital HRC 2020 education event a uniquely strong and supportive event for health practitioners, patients and our company partners alike.
“Our esteemed faculty have agreed to provide their presentations in digital format so we can ensure high quality educational content is delivered direct to the clinician.”
