Letter to Manager


Dear <supervisor's name>,

I would like to attend the 2017 NASC Sports Event Symposium, March 27-30, 2017 in Sacramento, CA. The Symposium will enable me to attend a number of education sessions that are directly applicable to my work and will allow me to network with a variety of industry experts and colleagues from around the country. Many of the presentations are tailored to the <Insert your primary function here i.e. marketing professional, event coordinator, sales professional, etc.> and give information on <insert benefits/lessons here, for example: event management, economic impact, and sales & marketing>. The symposium also allows me to meet with up to 45 different <Insert who you will meet with during appointment times i.e. event owners and vendors, destinations> during pre-scheduled one-on-one appointments in the Sports Marketplace. I am seeking sponsorship for the registration fee, travel expenses to the Symposium, and living expenses during the Symposium. A detailed cost breakdown is included below.

After reviewing the Symposium program, I have identified a number of education sessions which will allow me to gain knowledge and understanding about how we can improve our marketing processes. The presentations are facilitated by both industry experts and colleagues who have faced similar challenges. I chose each presentation because it directly relates to an issue we currently face. Getting the information in a seminar format will greatly reduce the research time and costs that <your organization's name> would normally incur in researching the topics. Incidentally, I have only listed some of the seminars that I will attend. Including them all would make this memo much too long.

<You will need to insert the session descriptions which most apply to your responsibilities.>

<The numbers in brackets below will need to be adjusted to reflect the current pricing. The travel costs vary as well and should be changed to reflect your costs.>

The full price Symposium registration is <$xxxx (see registration page for full registration rates)>.

The opportunity for me to develop better contacts and gain knowledge in specific areas of <your area of expertise> makes my attendance at the NASC Sports Event Symposium is a wise investment, which will yield rich dividends for <name of your organization>.
