Thanks and Acknowledgement
We would like to thank Prof. Ates Kadioglu, President of the Turkish Association of Urology (TAU) and the TAU community for their generous support and help, which contributed a lot to the success of the congress. We also would like to express our gratitude to Prof. Kadir Önem, INUS local host, who was strongly committed to the organization of the congress from the beginning, playing a very important role in the scientific committee and dissemination to the Turkish urological community.
Thanks to the excellent venue eight international companies (Laborie, Coloplast, Wellspect, Axonics, Hollister, Pierre Fabre and Allergan) as well as three national companies (Recordati, Eczacibasi, Oruba) were represented by booths (Recordati also represented Apogepha). The exhibition was appreciated by the participants as well as by the exhibitors. We would like to thank all the exhibitors and all the other companies who supported our congress very much. Without their help, it would have been much more difficult to organize this congress.
At last but not least, I would like to thank Ms. Irina Anich from the INUS office for her excellent engagement and efficient work, which were essential for the success of the congress.
