Welcome to VIP Congress

The VIP Congress belongs to an ambitious scientific project started in 2012, aiming to meet every two years scientists from different geographical areas for high-level scientific exchange, collaboration and education focused on vascular diseases.

The first edition was attended by more than 200 Latin Americans. The subsequent editions gathered over 300 people coming from North America, Asia, Africa and Australia.

Now comes the new edition with a greater approach.
VIP 2020 will join the 69th Congress of the European Society for Cardio Vascular Surgery (ESCVS) and we are excited to come together to exchange knowledge and experiences in our work field.

We trust that your attendance at this congress will result in sharing of expertise and expansion of local and global programs.
We encourage you to submit abstracts and to register early. We look forward to seeing many of you in Padua.

Don’t miss it!

Dear Attendees, Colleagues, Partners,

in recognition to the growing health risks related to the spread of the COVID-19 in Italy and worldwide, VIP Congress has been postponed and rescheduled to 17 September 2020 at the same venue, PadovaFiere - Pav. 11.

All engagements with the Organizing Secretariat related to this Congress and all existing registrations are automatically shifted to the new Congress date. 

The Organizing Committee would like to thank all participants and partners for their cooperation and understanding during this time. Despite this difficult situation, we are working hard to ensure that the postponed edition remains a success.
We hope that we can rely on your commitment and flexibility and we look forward to welcoming you in September! 

Thank you in advance for your continuous support. 

Best regards,

Prof. Franco Grego
