Charing Cross Symposium 2017

CX Symposium

The Charing Cross Symposium (CX), first took place in 1978 at Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith, London and has by now become the longest running vascular and endovascular symposium in Europe and one of the largest in the world.

London (UK) has been the host city of CX ever since. Until 1998, the symposium was held at Charing Cross Hospital, and between 1999 and 2012 at Imperial College. In 2013, it moved to National Hall, Olympia, and in 2014 to Olympia Grand.
