V National Congress on
Cardiostimulation and Electrophysiology
17 – 19 May 2019
Melia Grand Hermitage Hotel
Golden Sands Resort, Bulgaria

Dear colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the Vth National Congress on Cardiostimulation and Electrophysiology organized by the Bulgarian Society of Cardiostimulation and Electrophysiology. The Congress will be held on 17-19 May 2019 in Melia Grand Hermitage Hotel, Golden Sands Resort, Bulgaria.

The congress will focus on new therapeutic strategies of atrial fibrillation treatment, as well as on chamber tachycardia problems and sudden cardiac death treatment. Innovations in the field of cardiostimulation and cardiac resynchronization therapy will be presented.

The main goal and ambition of the congress is to attract not only experts in the field of electrophysiology and electrocardiostimulation but general cardiologists as well.

For participation in the event, please make on-line registration or download the Registration form from HERE.

Reservation as well as payment of hotel accommodation could also be made, by following the link above.

Updated information on the event as well as the preliminary program will be uploaded on the website of the Bulgarian Society of Cardiostimulation and Electrophysiology: http://www.bgpace.com/, as well as on the website of the Bulgarian Society for Interventional Cardiology http://bulsic.org/.

Official partner of the Bulgarian Society of Cardiostimulation and Electrophysiology in event logistics is Congress Management and Events – CME Ltd., contact person – Daniela Radulova /daniela@cmebg.com/

You are welcome!

Yours sincerely,
