The 16th Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Session
in conjunction with CardioRhythm
The largest scientific conference of heart rhythm in the Asia-Pacific region returned to Hong Kong 10 years after the event was last held in the city in 2013. The 16th Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Session (APHRS 2023) in conjunction with CardioRhythm took place from 1 to 3 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
With the theme "Embracing the Breakthroughs", the flagship medical convention in Hong Kong gathered more than 2, 300 cardiac experts from around the world to exchange the latest knowledge and ideas. It also gained diverse support from co-organisers and supporting organisations that are major regional cardiology associations in Hong Kong and the Mainland, including the Hong Kong College of Cardiology (HKCC) and the Chinese Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (CPSE).
Apart from the highlighted annual scientific session, the delegates also exchanged and gained insights from a range of lectures, case demonstrations, clinical trial presentations and workshops.
The success of this event not only consolidated the city’s reputation as a global leader in medical events, but also showcased Hong Kong’s role as a "super-connector" between the mainland China and the international community in various professions.
Hong Kong’s strong government support for medical events, the city’s advanced healthcare system and strategic advantage as a hub for medical care made it an ideal destination to host this major cardiology conference.
