19th International AF Symposium - 2014
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the upcoming 19th Annual Boston AF Symposium on January 9-11, 2014 at our new location, the Orlando World Center Marriott, Orlando, Florida. The Boston AF Symposium was initiated in 1995 in response to the growing epidemic of atrial fibrillation. Over the past nineteen years, this meeting has become a major scientific forum at which health care professionals have a unique opportunity to learn about advances in research and therapeutics directly from many of the most eminent investigators in the field. This intensive and highly focused three-day symposium brings together the world’s leading medical scientists to share in a highly interactive environment the most recent advances in the field of atrial fibrillation. The primary objective of the meeting is to provide attendees with a thorough and practical view of the current state of the art in the field of AF in a scholarly and collegial atmosphere. The meeting employs advanced teaching tools including satellite and pre-recorded case presentations and interactive audience response systems to share with attendees the most up to date basic, translational and clinical science in the field. The past two decades have witnessed dramatic advances in all areas of AF research which have contributed to major progress in our understanding of the pathophysiology of this arrhythmia and to the development of safer and more effective strategies for the management of AF and the prevention of AF-related stroke. The Boston AF Symposium is dedicated to bringing these advances to our attendees each year in an enlightening, stimulating, and highly integrated and organized scientific program.
After 18 years in Boston, we are delighted to offer all of our attendees, industry partners and faculty the opportunity to be housed in one location. Situated on 200 acres, the newly renovated Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center offers 2000 deluxe guest rooms, 5 restaurants, 73 meeting rooms, large and flexible exhibit space, a dedicated convention concierge staff, full service business center, and world-class exercise and recreational facilities onsite. The Boston AF Symposium looks forward to offering all our attendees easy and comfortable access to the symposium, housing and a wide range of amenities, all within a single convention facility.
