The world's leading event on heart failure


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the HFA Board, we are delighted to announce that Heart Failure 2023 will welcome you back from 20 to 23 May in Prague, Czechia – and online – around the world!

We’re looking forward to being back in person in Prague and are especially enthusiastic about the collaboration between different countries for the congress. This will serve to improve the treatment of heart failure worldwide.

These will include cases and how-to-do sessions, as well as special sessions where participants can ask questions to faculty to increase lively interaction with world-renowned experts in heart failure.

The Career Cafe mentoring event will be relaunched so you can get valuable career advice.

Several meetings are planned where you will be able to meet and talk with different ESC Working Groups and HFA committees.



Filipatos-audience-HF-1500x1000.jpgAs you can see, like previous Heart Failure congresses, you’re going to get the latest science, thought-provoking debates, and brilliant career advice.

But you’re also going to get more interactivity than at any other Heart Failure congress before.


Attend for you. Attend for your patients.

See you in Prague!
