From our large bustling exhibition to our satellite symposia, we offer a range of opportunities to support your company’s goals.

In 2024, the EACTS Annual Meeting returns to Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in the world and the second-oldest European capital city. It is renowned for its unique historical centre and stunning architecture.

Lisbon was host to the 33rd EACTS Annual Meeting and we hope you will join us in the vibrant city for the 38th EACTS Annual Meeting where we will navigate new horizons in cardiothoracic surgery to achieve better patient outcomes.

Discontinuation of Direct Sponsorship of HCPs

The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice which came into force on 1 January 2017 regulates all aspects of the MedTech industry’s relationships with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs). One important change introduced by the Code, applicable as of 1 January 2018 is discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs. As of that date, independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by means of Educational Grants.

For further information please refer to the MedTech website.

Please note that EACTS does not administer educational grants for attendee participation. A list of accredited organisations that can assist with educational grants is available here.
