The Oman Society of Lipid & Atherosclerosis (OSLA) has won the bid to host the Triennial International Symposium on Atherosclerosis in 2024, in the Sultanate of Oman.

The three day event has an expected attendance of up to 2,500 delegates and will be the first time that the conference will be hosted in the Middle East.

Oman has recently won 16 regional and international association conferences and the number of association meetings in Oman has doubled in 2017, as recorded by the International Congress and Convention Association’s (ICCA’s) recently released statistics.

Dr. Khalid Al Rasadi director of the Oman Convention Bureau said: "Bringing this international conference with global experts and having them share their knowledge will benefit not just Oman but also all of the GCC and surrounding countries.

"The symposium will bring direct, indirect and induced economic benefits to the Sultanate in addition to the strategic impact such an event has on the country. Conference attendees are high on the list of visitors that Oman wishes to attract and we know that they will leave with a positive impression and may return at a future dates with their families, colleagues or friends."
