The purple flashing lights on the gigantic stage of the 3000-seat main arena were switched off after a closing ceremony during which awards for the winners of the EuroPCR 2011 competitions (including best technical innovation, best abstract, best case report, and most educational complication) and the 2011 European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCIs) Research and Training Fellowships were presented.
