Hi (insert name of manager)
I would like to request approval to attend the HRPA 2020 Annual Conference and Trade Show, January 22–24, 2020 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The largest HR event in Canada and Canada’s most influential event for HR leaders & 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 & business leaders and professionals attend the show. 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 the ones our organization faces.
The conference offers 8 world-renowned keynotes and over 75 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)
