Exhibitors and Sponsors

HFSA’s annual meeting has gained a reputation as an outstanding forum for presentation of the latest information available (clinical and basic research, treatment and care of patients) in the field of heart failure. We are expecting a strong attendance again this year. The 2017 conference was the one of the largest conferences, with nearly 2,000 attendees. What better venue to showcase your company’s products and services than at a meeting attended by the key thought leaders and decision makers in the field of heart failure. Don’t miss an opportunity to be a part of the only multidisciplinary meeting dedicated to heart failure.
