Health & Safety
The health and safety of attendees, exhibitors, and even support staff is a top priority. The Society is working with the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) to ensure adherence to all local, state, and CDC regulations and guidance. Additionally, the venue has upgraded the Building Management System by replacing all air filters, allowing for a 25% increase in air filtration and improved air quality. Hotels selected by HRS have implemented new cleaning and sanitation standards along with various new policies to limit physical interaction with staff and other guests.
As HRS embraces the opportunity to adjust this year's annual meeting format for an improved attendee experience, we are pleased to announce new Daily Plenary sessions. This shift from a single opening plenary affords attendees the chance to hear from three innovative and inspiring individuals who are making significant impacts in today's world.
Heart Rhythm 2021 will convene 600+ of the finest clinicians, scientists, researchers, and innovators in the field of cardiac pacing and electrophysiology who will lead 200+ sessions about pacing, defibrillation, clinical arrhythmia management, ablation, pharmacology, genetics, basic science, health policy, and more.
