Hands-On Training

Hands-On Training Application

CTO Plus will feature Hands-On Training Workshops, where you can showcase and demonstrate your devices in a personalized, interactive, and inclusive learning environment to maximize engagement and boost ROI.

Companies can participate in one or more of the workshops topics listed below. The 45-minute workshops will take place outside the general session room on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3, 2024, during conference hours.

     • Intravascular Imaging: Efficient Workflows & AI for Image Interpretation
     • Calcium Modification

       Thrombectomy, Novel Stents/Drug Coated Balloons

     • Coronary Physiology
     • Complication Management
     • Advanced Wires & Microcatheters

    *Workshop titles are forth coming.

    The workshop schedule is currently under development and will be included in the comprehensive CTO Plus Program Agenda. As pre-registration is not mandatory, we will actively encourage attendees to participate through our pre-meeting and on-site marketing initiatives.  Attendees will be informed that space at each workshop table is limited, and their participation is contingent on space availability. The workshop sponsor will be in responsible for limiting the number of attendees. 

    In addition, regardless of the workshop schedule, attendees will be encouraged to visit all sponsors throughout the meeting. This will allow companies and attendees to take advantage of every opportunity to engage and connect.
