Dear Exhibitor,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to exhibit at the 13th WORLD CONGRESS ON HEART DISEASE, International Academy of Cardiology Annual Scientific Sessions 2007, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver in Vancouver, BC, Canada, July 28 -31, 2007.

Plans for this meeting are progressing well. Many distinguished cardiologists and scientists have agreed to join the faculty participating in this Congress. Papers will be presented in the form of plenary sessions, symposia and posters, and will include superb scientific material originating from numerous laboratories around the globe, assuring that the meeting will be a major scientific event.

The Congress will provide the opportunity for a comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in cardiovascular medicine, primarily in the areas of molecular biology, coronary artery disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac surgery.

The exhibition will offer companies an excellent opportunity to meet with specialists in the rapidly evolving field of cardiovascular disease, and to present to the participants their products and services related to this important field.

We look forward to your active participation in the exhibition of the 13th WORLD CONGRESS ON HEART DISEASE, International Academy of Cardiology Annual Scientific Sessions 2007 and to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Vancouver in July 2007.

Yours sincerely,

Asher Kimchi, MD
