STS/AATS Tech-Con is a jointly sponsored program on novel therapies in cardiac and general thoracic surgery, held annually immediately preceding the STS Annual Meeting. The STS/AATS Tech-Con Task Force designs the program to address innovative topics, focusing on currently evolving concepts while providing the most up-to-date information and opinion.
Join us and more than 4,400 attendees - including approximately 2,300 cardiothoracic surgery professionals - from 65 countries in Houston, Texas, for the 2017 STS Annual Meeting.
As the world’s largest organization representing thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons, the Society provides an Annual Meeting that offers you the best forum to display your products and services and interact with the decision makers in the field.
The STS Annual Meeting is not only recognized for its educational innovation and world-renowned faculty, but also for its engaged and very active attendees. In fact, virtually every single attendee visits the exhibit hall at least once, and most visit at least three times during the Annual Meeting!
