Use this letter to request permission from your management to attend HP Protect 2015.
Dear [Manager’s Name],
I am writing to request approval so I may attend HP Protect 2015 on September 1-4 in National Harbor, MD, just outside of Washington, D.C. This is HP’s largest security conference event of the year, and I believe my attendance is a good investment for the following reasons:
- Technology insights: HP Protect will offer nearly 200 technology-focused presentations and open discussions.
- Knowledge building: I can extend my knowledge of new HP security products, partner solutions, security trends and related services via hands-on demos, a mock SOC and a CyberSecurity exhibition hall to help our organization identify areas for growth.
- Decision support:
- HP vision and strategy: HP’s senior security executives will discuss the company’s roadmap for the future and how technologies will evolve over the next decade.
The cost of a full conference pass is $1,595. If I register, I receive a $200 discount and can attend the conference for $1,395.
I am requesting approval for the registration fee, plus travel costs.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, and please let me know if you would like any additional information about the conference.
