ESC Congress 2015

Event overview

The ESC Congress is the world’s largest and most influential cardiovascular event and Europe’s largest medical congress. The event contributes to the global awareness of the latest clinical trials and breakthrough discoveries.

Key event objective

To raise the profile of cardiovascular disease (the single biggest killer in the UK, 1 in 3 people die as a result of cardiovascular disease) to support ESC’s mission of reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe.

Meeting the brief

In 2012, ExCeL announced that London would be the host city for ESC 2015. In the years building up to the event, the venue continued to make multi-million pound investments to enhance and improve the experience for delegates, with a specific focus on ESC. Innovations included upgrades to complimentary Wi-Fi, a refurbishment of the venue’s meeting rooms and a brand new retail and catering experience.


During the 8-day build, which occupied all of ExCeL’s 100,000 sqm, the venue welcomed almost 500 contractors, set-out 20,000 chairs, installed over 600 graphics, put together 23,000 lunch bags and prepared for over 1,000 onsite functions.

“London and ExCeL have completely delivered on our expectations. Never in the history of the ESC Congress have we had such a well-attended event. London has been a fantastic host city and ExCeL, based on feedback by participants, has delivered the best layout the congress has ever had. It is evident that the delegates have enjoyed being at the venue. A congress can’t work unless the city, the venue and the organiser work in partnership and I’m delighted that the partnership between ESC, London & Partners and ExCeL has been so strong – it’s even difficult to tell the teams apart, as they’ve worked together as one, to deliver a great event.”


Isabel Bardinet, CEO, European Society of Cardiology.
