Subject: EDspaces 2018 Conference and Expo
Dear Supervisor’s Name,
I’m requesting approval to attend the Education Market Association's (EDmarket) EDspaces 2018, November 7 - 9, in Tampa, Florida. EDspaces brings together thought leaders in the field of educational facilities for inspiring keynotes, educational sessions, product demonstrations, knowledge sharing, and networking.
EDspaces 2017 brought together more than 2,000 leaders from across the education sector for a three-day conference and expo to push past boundaries and help schools and colleges work for all students. And 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 of its three categories: Net Square Feet, Exhibiting Companies, and Total Attendance!
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 2018 Educational Facilities Scholarship. This scholarship will cover my registration fee and hotel accommodations, and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday is included with registration. In addition, EDspaces has negotiated discounted ground transportation through SuperShuttle.
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.
