Dear [MANAGER NAME], 

I would like to attend ConveyUX in Seattle on March 3–5, 2020. There are a lot of conferences but I’ve picked ConveyUX because of its focus on UX and stellar programming. I believe that this conference will give me a great opportunity to learn new skills and make meaningful connections that I can bring back [COMPANY].

Unlike large-scale conferences which often have subpar sessions and a lot of time is lost moving from one huge hall to another, ConveyUX is pretty small (around 500 people, according to the conference website). The content is features some of the industry’s most notable influencers such as Jared Spool and Stacey Higginbotham.

I sincerely appreciate the opportunities to grow as a professional in our company. I feel confident that I’ll bring back a ton of useful notes and takeaways for the team. I couldn’t be more excited to attend this one, and I’m quite certain that it’s a good investment in training for our entire company.

Thank you for your consideration,
