International Stroke Conference 2021

AHA is currently planning this meeting to be an in-person event AND a virtual event.

An important message from the American Heart Association

The AHA is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic as we plan for the International Stroke Conference 2021 in February 2021, in Denver, Colorado. The AHA is currently planning for a hybrid event, to include our traditional in-person meeting along with a virtual experience. The AHA is committed to supporting its members and providing opportunity for connection with industry colleagues in safe, meaningful ways.

Here is the latest:

  • Proactive planning is underway  for International Stroke Conference February 10-12, 2021 at Colorado Convention Center.
  • In addition to the live event, AHA is expanding the virtual components of the event to include opportunities for sponsor and exhibitor.
  • This format will extend the life of the conference and related business opportunities.
  • This hybrid approach, the event held in-person along with digital experiences, is the new trend in meetings and exhibits to meet the needs of all stakeholders.
  • Some will be able to travel, others will not. Yet, everyone can still participate. And, those who’ve not been able to join us in the past, now can.
  • And, for AHA sponsors/exhibitor the virtual enhancements provide the opportunity to extend your reach pre- and post- conference.
  • The virtual Heart Hub is a year-long digital platform allowing sponsors/exhibitors 365 days a year.
