WELCOME NOTE

Dear Colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to announce the 2019 edition of the Gulf Arrhythmia Congress, the official scientific sessions of the Saudi Heart Rhythm Society (SHRS) and Gulf Heart Rhythm Society (GHRS). The Gulf Arrhythmia Congress (GAC) is the result of the aligned visions of the two professional societies to organize a state-of-the-science meeting in the Gulf and wider region highlighting the latest developments in the field of arrhythmia and cardiac electrophysiology.

The GAC sessions will be held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from January 18th to 19th, 2019. GAC is the official meeting of the SHRS and GHRS and is targeting electrophysiologists and other healthcare providers involved in the management of cardiac arrhythmias. We are determined to grow this meeting into the flagship arrhythmia congress in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META) region. The congress is endorsed by regional societies including the Saudi Heart Association, Gulf Heart Association, Emirates Cardiac Society, Kuwait Cardiac Society and Oman Heart Association. A distinguished faculty of leading electrophysiologists has been assembled to steer the congress and the development of its scientific program.

We are confident that the success of such an event is dependent on the strong participation and valuable contribution of our colleagues from the regional and global heart rhythm community. We therefore invite you to be part of this important initiative and partner with us to launch the most successful educational and professional congress in the field of electrophysiology in our region.

Sincerely,

Dr.Ahmed Al Fagih
President
Saudi Heart Rhythm Society
