Annual live meetings are a focus for many organizations and professional societies and have long been considered an essential part of lifelong learning. Live meetings offer a venue for a wide range of topics including late breaking science, traditional and novel educational formats, networking opportunities, integration of technology, engagement of the cardiovascular team, and more. Although many factors provide challenges for the future of live annual meetings, there are many opportunities as well. The unique aspects of interactions and experiences at these meetings will maintain their importance in the lifelong learning toolbox.
