Last year’s inaugural event created a truly global immersive virtual experience – 3,000 vascular professionals registered for a 3-day event that brought together the best in live cases from international centres of excellence.
This year’s focus remains firmly on the practical. VIO 2022 will support you, the healthcare practitioner, to deliver the best in patient care by providing a platform that showcases the latest technology, tips and tricks from leading operators, and insights from thought leaders at the cutting edge of vascular care.
