En route to our participation in MESOT 2023, we seized the opportunity for a stopover in Istanbul, where we dedicated our time to an immersive TTS 2024 program brainstorming session. Over a span of two days (May 22-23), our team enthusiastically engaged in dynamic discussions and meticulous planning, cultivating an atmosphere of collaboration and innovation. We are excitedly looking forward to sharing the valuable outcomes and insights generated during this gathering in the weeks to come. Remember to mark your calendars and stay tuned, as we will be providing regular updates through our weekly newsletter!
