Hello [insert manager's name],

I'm excited to tell you about a great opportunity for me to learn valuable skills that  I can share with the team while advancing my professional development. With your permission, I'd like to attend IBM's Think 2019 conference, which is taking place February 12 – 15 in San Francisco. This event will give me unmatched access to experts, customers, partners, and IBM executives from around the world.

Think is like no other conference for many reasons, including:

  • It's the only in-person opportunity to learn how our organization can get the most out of current (and future) IBM products and technologies.
  • It offers more than 1,000 labs, 1,000+ certifications, and 250+ deep-dive technical labs to improve my skills.
  • It's a place to gather fresh ideas from global thought leaders and enhance our organization's reputation through face-to-face networking opportunities.

This is the approximate cost for me to attend Think 2019:

  • Airfare:
  • Hotel:
  • Meals:
  • Registration:
  • Other expenses:
  • Total cost:

If you'd like to approve a team of us to represent our organization, the conference offers bundle packages for companies as well.

Thank you for your consideration. You can learn more about Think at ibm.com/think

I'm looking forward to your reply.
