Needless to say, the event lived up to expectations. The conference was full of great lectures, amazing exhibits and a lots of people.

I’m not sure exactly how many people were at the event but I heard that more than 20,000 people usually attend the conference. There were cardiologists, surgeons, nurses and medical teams from countries all over the world.

Keep on tickin!
