The countdown to one of the biggest Telugu convention has started. The Telangana American Telugu Association (TTA) is organising what is turning out to be the major Telugu entertainment event in the United States. TTA Mega Convention, an annual event organised by TTA since 2015, will commence on May 27 and run through May 29. This comes as a perfect break given the COVID-19 pandemic, which had restricted public gatherings on a large scale for the last two years.
Given the scale of this event, there's a lot of excitement around it in the Telugu community. More than 40 teams, over 300 volunteers have been making preparations for the event for last six months. There will be hundreds of vendor booths, big dining halls to cater to thousands of guests, and artefacts symbolising various tourist locations of Telangana across the convention centre.
