The Cardiovascular Diagnosis and Therapy had a booth in the exhibition area and was glad to have a chance to communicate with readers mostly from China, as well as speakers from other countries invited to the meeting (Figure 2 & 3). Our Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Paul Schoenhagen was also invited as a speaker to the meeting (Figure 4).

We were also honored to interview some of the speakers. The interviews will be published on CDT in the upcoming issues to share their expertise with readers whom could not be onsite for their speeches. We are grateful for their great support for CDT (Figure 5).
