If you need a little help convincing your boss or supervisor that attending the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia would be beneficial to you and your company, we have a letter template prepared to help explain why TPS is a worthy investment. Feel free to take this and edit it as you see fit.
I would like to attend the 49th Turbomachinery & 36th Pump Symposia in Houston. The event is scheduled for Sept. 15-17, with full-day short courses on Sept. 14.
Attending TPS will benefit my professional development, as well as [your company name] as a whole. Benefits include:
1. Technical Sessions: TPS has more than 90 technical sessions for me to choose from. The program is hand-selected by an advisory committee of industry experts, and taught by leaders in their fields. Session types include short courses, case studies, tutorials, lectures and discussion groups. I’ve already taken a look at the program and plan on attending [list sessions] if I’m approved to register. [Course title] will be particularly helpful [particular problem/issue you’ve been working on].
2. Exhibition: More than 350 exhibitors will be there, demonstrating full-size equipment and networking with delegates. I think this speaks volumes about how important this event is in the industry. I’ve taken a look at the exhibiting company list, and would like to visit [list specific companies]. I think [company name] will be able to offer some solutions for [particular problem/issue you’ve been working on].
3. Networking: Between the technical program and exhibit hall, networking opportunities abound at TPS. This event is a great opportunity for me to get out from behind my desk and shake hands with people who can help grow our business. I already have a plan in place to follow up with contacts I meet so I can create lasting partnerships that will continuously help me learn and get better at what I do every day at the office.
