ACC.21
70th Annual Scientific Session & Expo
"reFocus on Science and reConnect with Patient Care"
All Virtual Conference


Presented by the American College of Cardiology.

ACC.21 is an All Virtual Experience
With the continued high prevalence of COVID-19, the slow rollout and acceptance of the vaccine and concordant extension of travel restrictions from health care institutions, academic medical centers and industry partners, ACC.21 leaders and the Board of Trustees have made the decision to transition from a hybrid model to an entirely virtual experience from May 15-17. Building on the success of last year’s meeting, the ACC.21 virtual experience will be a world-class program delivered through an innovative digital platform built for learning, collaboration, and networking. It will also offer a robust virtual Expo with both exhibits and education from our signature Learning Destinations and, last but not least, more opportunities for attendees to engage and interact with colleagues from around the world.
