Justify Your Attendance

We understand how challenging it can be to justify your attendance for events. It’s time away from your current projects and team, so there needs to be clear value in attending. To help you organize your conference planning and, if needed, to assist you in justifying your attendance. We’ve put together a justification toolkit. Use this to present your business case, identify key event takeaways and maximize your event budget, by setting event goals to establish your ROI with your manager.
