Planning is underway for the 2020 Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions

New this year – one flat registration rate that provides attendees access to all of the meeting's educational content, including full Heart Rhythm On Demand - for the sessions you are unable to attend. Also, attendees will now be able to claim CME credits and MOC points for viewing posters in the poster area.

The meeting will be held in the San Diego Convention Center, 111 W Harbor Drive, San Diego, California.  It will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 6 and end at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 9, 2020.



The closest airport is the San Diego International Airport (SAN) located just 3.5 miles or 15 minutes from the convention center. Attendees may also choose to fly into the Tijuana International Airport (TIJ) which is just 22 miles or 34 minutes away and provides direct access to the U.S. via the Cross Border Xpress bridge.

Amtrak's Santa Fe Depot (SAN) is located just 1 mile from the Convention Center and allows easy options from Northern California and points beyond.
