Communicate the Value
To help you communicate the value and benefits you will receive from attending this year’s Tangoe client conference, below is a sample letter you can use to help make your case for not missing 2017’s premier event!

<Insert Manager’s Name>,

I would like your approval to attend Tangoe’s complimentary client event Tangoe LIVE. It is taking place April 30 – May 3, 2017 in Orlando, FL.

The conference will give me a chance to connect with over 300 professionals like me in order to optimize our expense management efforts. This is something that no other event is offering.

The three main event days of the conference are dedicated to inspiring and actionable keynotes. The first day of the event features a 1-day Tangoe University course with credits that can be applied to a Tangoe certification. I’ll be able to meet one-on-one with our Tangoe account reps and sponsors, and participate in dozens of immersive breakout sessions, roundtable discussions, and one-on-one discussions on Tangoe solutions and services. I know I will be able to apply my learnings, and make sure we’re doing things as strategically as possible.

Plus, I’ll have the chance to meet with a number of technology and service providers who will be showcasing their solutions during the event. This means that I can come back with even more ideas of how we can be more efficient and effective. This year there are even scheduled demos, so I’ll see the technology offerings firsthand.

I’ve broken down the approximate cost of my attendance at Tangoe LIVE from Sunday – Wednesday, April 30 – May 3 below:

Airfare: $ [insert your estimated airfare costs]
Hotel: $219 per night + tax
Conference: FREE
Optional Tangoe University: $495
Estimated Total: $ [insert total amount of estimated costs]

Upon my return from Tangoe LIVE 2017, I will share key takeaways, including those that we can implement immediately. 

Thank you for your consideration of this request. Tangoe LIVE has a room block at the Orlando Marriott World Center at a discounted rate of $219 per night, plus tax, so it would be great to book early. Therefore, I appreciate your immediate attention to my request.
