Dear <supervisor's name>,

This letter is in support of my attendance at the 2017 ttra Marketing Outlook Forum October 23-25, 2017, in Baltimore, Maryland.  The conference is the industry's leading strategic travel forecast conference combining industry networking and quality educational programs. Throughout the conference I will attend sessions that are directly applicable to the work of our organization, and I will also have opportunity to meet with a variety of colleagues from around the country and the world. Many of the presentations are tailored to my role at and . I am requesting funding for the registration fee, travel expenses to the conference, and lodging and meals during the conference. A detailed cost breakdown is included with this request.

Among other benefits, my attendance at MOF will:

  • Equip me with data, insights and tools that inform and drive smart marketing and business decisions and current marketing and long-term strategic planning;
  • Provide me with the opportunity to hear marketers and researchers share the same platforms for discussion/learning/strategy development and decisions;
  • Provide me the opportunity to engage with my peers and industry experts, identify industry opportunities and explore cooperative solutions to industry challenges.

While there are many sessions that will be valuable to my professional development, I have listed the top three that I feel are most relevant to our organization’s goals.

1.      Insert the session descriptions which most apply to your responsibilities.

2.      Insert the session descriptions which most apply to your responsibilities.

3.      Insert the session descriptions which most apply to your responsibilities.

I have included a breakdown of approximate costs to attend the ttra Marketing Outlook Forum. The opportunity for me to develop better contacts and gain knowledge in specific areas of makes my attendance at the MOF a wise investment.  If any questions, I’d be happy to discuss the conference and the value gleaned from my participation.
