On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my distinct honour to invite each and every one of you to join the 13th Asia Pacific Congenital and Structural Heart Intervention Symposium (APCASH 2023) on 9-10th December 2023, taking place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong SAR. We are delighted to meet many of our good friends and colleagues from round the globe in this face-to-face meeting after COVID-era.
APCASH is the flagship symposium hosted by the Hong Kong Society of Congenital and Structural Heart Disease (HKCASH), an academic organization that aims to promote, maintain and pursue excellence in the care of patients with congenital and structural heart diseases. The symposium marks a pivotal moment in our ongoing mission to advance the field of congenital and structural heart interventions. Our pursuit of knowledge and innovation in this critical domain is driven by a shared dedication to improving the lives of those affected by these conditions across the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
The main theme of the symposium this year is “Innovations in Structural and Congenital Heart Intervention”. Through live case transmissions from world-renowned centres, mind-opening lectures, case sharing from different local and international experts, new ideas, knowledges and techniques can be shared. During the symposium, we will have the privilege of engaging with renowned experts, learning about ground-breaking research, and exchanging invaluable insights. Honouring the core value of APCASH in fostering international collaboration, this year we are also honoured to have the opportunity to host a CSI@APCASH session, with experts from the CSI foundation sharing their insight on innovations in our field.
I encourage each of you to actively participate in discussions and foster connections that will extend far beyond the confines of this symposium. Please also look out for our pre-symposium educational activities, details of which will be announced closer to the date of the symposium.
Thank you, and I wish us all a productive, enlightening, and memorable symposium.
