Once again, Barcelona will become the European capital of cardiology. On 26-30 August 2017, the Gran Vía site of Fira de Barcelona will host the European Society of Cardiology Congress. This congress is held in a different European country every year, although this is not the first time that Barcelona has been chosen to stage the event. Fira de Barcelona also hosted this prestigious medical congress in 1992, 1999, 2009 and 2014. Read more
The European Society of Cardiology Congress is one of the most important scientific events, which brings together specialists from some 140 different countries every year. The 2016 Congress, held in Rome, attracted over 30,000 experts, and more than 11,000 scientific studies were presented during the event.
Although some 150 different cardiovascular topics will be addressed, this year's Congress will focus on Percutaneous Coronary Interventions – PCI, with 500 scientific sessions led by experts. These sessions will concentrate on the areas considered to be of greatest importance: diagnosis, treatment of cardiovascular disease and scientific research.
As mentioned earlier, this year's European Society of Cardiology Congress will take place at the Gran Vía site of Fira de Barcelona. This is one of the largest trade fair complexes in Europe and it was designed by the Japanese architect Toyo Ito, winner of the 2013 Pritzker Prize. This venue is located in Hospitalet de Llobregat, very close to Barcelona, with excellent transport connections. The European Society of Cardiology Congress at the Gran Vía exhibition centre is very easy to reach by public transport, taxi or private vehicle. From Barcelona, you can take the metro (line L9), train (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya - FGC) or bus (lines H12, 79, 46 and 65).
If you are going to attend the 2017 European Society of Cardiology Congress, we would recommend reserving in advance. Not only should account be taken of more than 30,000 specialists visiting Barcelona, but this is also one of the times of year when a great many tourists come to the city.

This was the best Airbnb we've ever stayed in around the world and we have visited many over the last few years. The location can't be beat. The management company was responsive, helpful and super thoughtful. We had small treats waiting for us and our kids upon arrival and other nice touches during our stay. We have recommended this location and company to all others who visit Barcelona.
Wow, what a great review, thank you very much! We are so happy to see that you had such a great stay and felt well taken care of. It is also so great to see that your children liked our little treats. We thought they may like it. It has been a pleasure to host you. We'd love to see you and all the family again soon!
