Dear valued guests,

On behalf of all members of the Bahrain Heart Failure Conference and Exhibition, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to each of you to the 2nd Bahrain Heart Failure Conference, scheduled to take place from May 30 to June 1, 2024, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Manama, Bahrain. After the resounding success of our inaugural conference last year, we are filled with enthusiasm to present an even more enriching and comprehensive event. Our determination to continue this tradition stems from the strong belief that through collaboration, education, and shared expertise, we can significantly improve the outcomes for patients battling heart failure—a condition with high mortality that urgently demands our dedicated attention and efforts. This year, we are privileged to host a distinguished heart failure specialist from the region, whose expertise will undoubtedly be a highlight of our informative sessions. Our scientific program has been meticulously crafted to cover a broad spectrum of topics, including robust workshops and a dedicated session for the invaluable contributions of nurses in the care continuum of heart failure patients. An integral part of our conference will be the exhibitions, which will showcase cutting-edge technology and the latest advancements from the pharmaceutical industry, bringing you the forefront of heart failure management and treatment options.

We are also immensely proud to announce that this conference has earned the endorsement of the Gulf Heart Association, a well-respected entity worldwide, as well as the endorsement from the Kuwait Heart Foundation. Such support is a testament to the quality and significance of our collective work. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, whose generosity makes this conference possible, to our esteemed speakers for sharing their knowledge and insights, and to all the delegates who will be attending. Your participation is the cornerstone of the conference’s success and the advancement of our shared mission. Together, we will delve into the latest research, discuss innovative treatment approaches, and foster a collaborative environment where knowledge exchange flourishes. Our shared goal is clear: to improve the lives of those affected by heart failure and to strive towards a future where heart failure’s impact is considerably diminished. I eagerly look forward to welcoming you to Manama and to an eventful few days of learning, collaboration, and growth.
