  • Share the on-site Convention Program & Buyers Guide and mobile app for speaker handouts with your colleagues.

  • Explain what you plan to get out of attending and how that will benefit your work, company and customers.

  • Be ready with a plan that shows who will cover for you while you’re attending the Convention & Exposition.

  • Offer to share a room to reduce hotel expenses.

 A well-prepared and professional request will go a long way towards winning your supervisors' approval!
