Thank you for attending.

Hi (insert name of manager),

I would like to request approval to participate in the virtual HRPA 2021 Annual Conference and Trade Show, January 26 – 29, 2021. This conference is the largest HR event in Canada and Canada’s most influential event for HR leaders and professionals. Attending the conference and trade show would be a significant opportunity for me to learn about the industry’s leading ideas, innovations, solutions, tools, resources, and best practices.

Thousands of HR and business leaders and professionals attend the show. Even in the virtual environment, I’ll have the opportunity to network with a diverse range of industry experts and peers to find out how they’re navigating challenges similar to our own organization.

The conference offers 8 world-renowned keynotes and over 65 educational sessions, panels and workshops presented by industry thought leaders. I’ll learn practical skills and strategies to deal with our organization’s most pressing issues as well as trends that will impact the future of our organization. Here are some of the sessions I’d like to attend that are directly applicable to my work and our organization: (insert the sessions you would like to attend)

With access to product demos and one-on-one video time with industry experts, I’ll be able to connect with companies who understand our organization’s explicit challenges and can recommend the right solution. Here are a few of the exhibitors I would like to meet with: (insert the exhibitors you would like to meet with)

Throughout the 4-day event, there’s time dedicated to networking, plus special networking events, so I’ll have the chance to raise our organization’s profile, develop our relationships and contacts, and set up meetings with people who can help our organization in the future.

The registration fee for this event is (insert applicable price). When I return from the HRPA2021 Conference and Trade Show, I will share all the information I’ve collected including speakers’ presentations, notes, useful vendor product information, and contacts I’ve made with our team.
