Budgeting and Justification

You're ready to decode the future and we couldn't be more excited! Now it's time to make sure you've budgeted, and it may also be time to convince your supervisor to support your attendance.

Approval

Getting approval to attend the conference is a two-part endeavor; you need to demonstrate the benefits of the conference to your organization and then you'll need to persuade your supervisor that it's worth the investment of time and money. Here are some steps you can take to help make the case:

  • Step 1: Review the agenda
    Review the agenda and outline the sessions and committee meetings that would be beneficial to your organization. Note that the conference offers the most industry education under one roof - all included with registration. Create a list of goals and solutions you're seeking and find the sessions that will help you achieve them. Be specific when explaining how the information you'll return with will be valuable. If your organization has a challenge, we have a solution waiting for you at the conference. 
  • Step 2: Review the exhibitor list
    The exhibit hall will host 220+ vendors showcasing a wide-range of innovative products and services that will help your organization prepare for the future - that's the most solutions per square foot in the industry's largest exhibit hall.
  • Step 3: Know who you can meet
    See who you can meet with while in Denver - there will be 300+ airports of all sizes represented. Make connections and build your network so you know who to call when facing something new.
