Why we chose Dubai?
No one can doubt the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) with proven statistics of more than 17 million people dying each year and a staggering 82% of lives claimed in low- and middle-income countries. We all know that CVD is the number one killer worldwide and in the UAE itself it is responsible for 29% of all annual deaths.
It is the first time in its 62-year history that the WCC has been held in the Gulf region. Dubai, situated as the gateway to the Middle East in the heart of the Gulf, has the infrastructure, the air links and, above all, the need and desire to bring together the world and regional experts on heart health, CVD and stroke.
By choosing easily accessible Dubai as the destination for the WCC 2012, the World Heart Federation has taken a significant step toward fulfilling its mission in leading the fight against heart disease and stoke for many low-and middle income regions and countries within easy reach – including Africa, the Middle East, South-East Asia and India.

Why hold an industry satellite activity and /or educational workshop at WCC?
Companies are invited to organize satellite activities as part of the WCC. These allow companies to attract interested, qualified delegates and update them first-hand on the science that underpins your campaigns and products. It is one of the most educational formats for open, frank and interactive learning and debate between the medical profession on the topics most relevant to your corporate goals. The time slots are specifically allocated to be independent of the main scientific programme, maximizing the numbers of delegates that can attend your industry satellite activity.

If you have products or services for the heart-health medical community that fall within the following categories or similar, then we have the right platform to assist you with meeting your goals:
Associations; Education; Food service, Nutrition and lifestyle; Imaging; Information technology; Hospital/Institution; Medical devices and equipment; Pharmaceuticals; Publishing and Research
