Subject: EDspaces 2019 Conference and Expo
Dear Supervisor's Name,
I'm requesting approval to attend the Education Market Association's (EDmarket) EDspaces 2019, October 23 - 25, 2019, in Milwaukee, WI. Once a year, EDmarket brings together thought leaders in the field of educational facilities for inspiring keynotes, educational sessions, product demonstrations, knowledge sharing, and networking at EDspaces.
EDspaces 2018 was attended by more than 2,300 educational facilities professionals representing more than 800 organizations. The number of leaders and educational professionals attending the conference has grown over the past several years increasing the networking and professional development opportunities. In fact, EDspaces was named one of Trade Show Executive's 50 Fastest-Growing Shows of 2017 in all three categories: Net Square Feet, Exhibiting Companies, and Total Attendance! EDmarket expects similar recognition for EDspaces 2018.
Here's an overview of the ways EDspaces will enable me to be even more successful in my role:
I'm currently working on ways to reduce expenses, including applying for an EDspaces 2019 Scholarship which will cover my registration fee and hotel accommodations. In addition, EDmarket provides lunch on Wednesday and Thursday.
Here's an approximate breakdown of costs:
I'll be happy to submit a report after EDspaces that will include major takeaways, tips, and a set of recommendations to maximize the return on our current investment in innovative solutions. I can also share relevant information with key personnel on other teams throughout our organization.
Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to your reply.
