Conference Brochure

Charing Cross (CX) International Symposium is organized by BIBA Medical Ltd and will be held from Apr 21 - 24, 2020 at Olympia London, London, England, United Kingdom.

The Charing Cross Symposium 2020, London, is a vascular and endovascular annual meeting where Education, Innovation and Evidence come together.

CX 2020 will conclude another cycle of Controversies, Challenges and Consensus, with this year focusing on Consensus. In 2020, we introduce a new session, Major Vascular Trauma, including talks on aortic, pelvis and extremity, and neck trauma.

With a fantastic programme covering the core topics of Aortic, Peripheral Arterial, Venous & Lymphatic, Acute Stroke, Vascular Access and iWounds, the CX Symposium approach has always been to promote Education, Innovation, and Evidence, with a strong focus on audience participation and Q&A. In addition to traditional learning through talks and presentations, we pride ourselves on our free-for-all our hands-on workshops, designed to improve your knowledge of the latest devices and techniques, leading to better patient outcomes in your place of work.

At CX 2019 attendees could receive up to 28 CME points.

We look forward to welcoming you to CX 2020!
