The 3rd ECHO ASE ASEAN Manila, Philippine, March 22-24, 2018
Register now! 5 weeks to go!
On behalf of my co-chairs, Roberto Lang (Chicago), Edwin Tucay (Manila), and KK Poh (Singapore) and our entire superb international faculty, I extend a warm invitation for you to join us in Manila for the 3rd Echo ASE-ASEAN Conference on March 22-24, 2018. Now is the time to make your travel arrangements to Manila and book a room at the magnificent Conrad Hotel for three days of world-class education focusing on how echocardiography can be used to manage complex cardiology cases. Building on the great momentum and enthusiasm from our first two Echo ASE-ASEAN meetings in Bangkok, we will have something for everyone in echo, regardless of your background. If you are relatively early in your echo education or want to focus on acquisition techniques, we will have dedicated sessions in the afternoons on the basics of echocardiography. Paralleling these sessions will be more advanced topics, including 3D and strain, which are growing rapidly in our practice. In the mornings, all of us will be together, covering a host of clinical echo topics with a strong case-based emphasis. Our faculty are the best in the world, including past ASE Presidents Roberto Lang and Tom Ryan (and myself), Lissa Sugeng from Yale, and Magan Yamat, a sonographer in Roberto’s lab. From Australia, we’re bringing Greg Scalia and Bonita Anderson, two of the most effective and entertaining educators around. From the ASEAN region, my co-chair KK Poh has organized outstanding speakers from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, while local host Edwin Tucay and our friends in the Philippines Society of Echocardiography are covering a number of topics and presenting many fascinating cases for our assessment. We’ll also have original research for you to learn from. The co-chairs and I have selected some great abstracts and unique case reports that will be on display throughout the meeting.
Manila is a wonderful locale for our meeting. I
was there in September and found it a fascinating
mix of cultures from Southeast Asia, Spain, and
Mexico, with a complex cuisine that borrows from
all of these places. And, yes, it’s a long way from
America to Manila, but maybe not as far as you
think. Philippines Airways has nonstop flights
from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Vancouver, with connections
to the East Coast. You can book a round trip right now from New
York to Manila for less than $700! Alternatively, you can travel
through any of the major cities of Asia. The Conrad Manila is a
stunning hotel, completed just a year ago, and with enough art to
fill a major museum. And for those of you who may be leery of
Manila’s traffic (which actually wasn’t all that bad when I was there
last fall), note that the Conrad is just a short 3 mile drive from the
airport. If you’ve got more time to spend in the Philippines, look no
farther than the beautiful islands of Boracay, Cebu and Palawan,
which Conde Nast Traveler have been declared to be the top three
islands in the world! How can you go wrong?
We really look forward to having you in Manila! Head to ASEcho.org and register today.
Early registration closes on February 22, so hurry up and get the lower rates!
