I am delighted to welcome you to the Beyond 2000 website. We hope that those of you who were able to participate in the 21st annual symposium, held in conjunction with the annual CCS meeting in Toronto in October, 2015, enjoyed an enriching educational experience.

Development of our 2016 program, to be held Mon. Oct. 24, is well underway. We will again utilize the binocular approach we introduced in 2015 in order to provide registrants with targeted content that is tailored to individual interests. Specifically, the overall B2K symposium will be comprised of two sequential events. In the first, we’ll explore the increasingly common and important subjects of heart failure and atrial fibrillation; the second is aimed at our traditional target of acute coronary syndromes. In both, key thought leaders will inform and engage us with insights that will influence the way we think and act. This year, in response to your feedback, we have set some time aside for Q&A using electronic media and as always there will be illustrative cases designed to sharpen the discussion points. I invite you to peruse the programs posted on this site for further information.

If you have not already done so, please complete the simple registration process to access resource materials from prior years that are posted on this site. Registration for the 2016 symposium will open in July.

I thank you for your continued interest in this symposium and look forward to seeing you October 24 in la belle province.
