Dubai wins bid to host World Congress of Cardiology & Cardiovascular Health in 2018
“The 2018 congress will focus on prevention with the global objective of reducing premature mortality by reducing the burden of non-communicable diseases by 25 percent by 2020,” David Wood, president of the World Heart Federation, said.
The congress will take place at the Dubai World Trade Center from Dec. 5 to 8, 2018. The global interactive event will bring together cardiovascular disease specialists, where they will share knowledge with specialists from other disciplines to promote cardiovascular health.
“Dubai proved to be a successful host of the World Congress of Cardiology in 2012, and it is a testament to the emirate’s reputation as a strong business events destination that the congress is returning so soon,” Issam Kazim, CEO of the Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing, said. “The event will bring thousands of additional visitors to Dubai and further enhance its status as a knowledge hub. Dubai Business Events, the city’s official convention bureau, will assist the World Heart Federation, Dubai Health Authority and other key stakeholders in planning for the event in 2018 and ensuring it leaves a strong legacy.”
