Subject: Request to Attend Wi-Fi Trek 2018
Dear [Decision Maker Name],
Wi-Fi Trek 2018 takes place from October 14-19 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront in San Diego, California. The Conference and Training Package offers three full days of educational training from experienced industry practitioners and two and a half full days of technical and executive talks from industry experts. It is regarded as the leading forum for wireless and IT professionals. Therefore I would like to request approval to attend, as I believe it will further develop my technical skills, and build knowledge around new Wi-Fi innovations and shared best practices.
The approximate investment for my attendance is as follows (complete the information as appropriate):
Travel Costs: $XXX
Meals (3-5 Days at $XXX): $XXX
Conference Pass**: $XXXX
Training Pass**: $XXX
Total Cost to Attend: $XXXX-XXXX
*The Conference has specially negotiated hotel rates for attendees ranging from $249-289. Rooms are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis (cheapest typically go first).
**Pricing increases every month: http://conferences.cwnp.com/registration/
Payback: Our ROI
I believe the insights learned by attending Wi-Fi Trek Conference can help avert costly Wi-Fi installation and security scenarios. The cost of my attendance seems a small price to pay for actionable intelligence to help our business gain an intimate knowledge of wireless.
When I return from the Wi-Fi Trek Conference, I will compile a short presentation covering speakers presentation notes, useful vendor product information, new contacts made and a proposal for implementing new ideas that will benefit our team. I will have the opportunity to obtain a CWNP certification if I attend training. I will also make any Conference materials available to my colleagues.
To benefit from the best discounts, I need to register by April 8th or I will need your approval to adjust the price to the most recent offering.
