Dear [Name],

I am writing to request your approval to attend F5’s annual conference, Agility. At this year’s Agility, I’ll have the opportunity to dive deep into how to build, secure, and deploy incredible applications in any environment.

The conference is being held in Orlando, March 16–19. I have reviewed the agenda and feel that this conference would help advance our collective knowledge of application services which directly aligns to these projects underway for our team:

  • [Insert your project or initiative here]

I’ll have the opportunity to do training and certifications that would otherwise require multiple courses and sessions throughout the year. During the conference, I’ll have access to:

  • 8+ hours of educational sessions from F5 solution experts and technology partners
  • Up to 24 hours of hands-on lab sessions
  • 4+ hours of keynote presentations from F5’s leadership and industry experts
  • Streamlined access to key technology vendors
  • Peer-to-peer learning with attendees from other organizations all using F5 solutions
  • Complimentary certification exams

In reviewing the sponsor list, there are several exhibitors participating in Agility that I plan to evaluate for future use. While in Orlando, I’ll be checking out: [Insert the sponsors you’re interested in here. Check the Agility site as new sponsors are being added all the time.]

I plan to make this conference beneficial for our whole team. When I return, I’ll meet with the team to relay recommendations and action items, and circulate a detailed, actionable Trip Report.

Please accept this proposal to attend as I am confident we will see significant return on the investment.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your reply.
