Dear < Supervisor’s name >,
I would like to attend the SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2016) on May 16-19, 2016, the premier event for the microelectronics manufacturing. The conference will enable me to attend multiple technical sessions that are directly applicable to my job and will allow me to network with a variety of microelectronics experts and colleagues from around the world. Technical presentations at the ASMC 2016 will provide concrete, take-away tools that I will be able to apply to my work at < your organization’s name >. The presentations are targeted to the < your technology area > professional and give information on how to < list benefits to your responsibilities >. I am seeking sponsorship for the registration fee, travel expenses to the conference, and living expenses during the ASMC 2016.
After reviewing the conference schedule, I have identified a number of technical sessions and keynotes which will allow me to gain knowledge and understanding about how we can improve our processes. ASMC 2016 technical presentations have been peer-reviewed, and will be presented by industry professionals who have faced similar challenges. I chose these presentations because they are directly related to issues with which we are dealing. Getting the information in a conference format will greatly reduce the time and costs the < your organization’s name > would normally incur in researching the topics.
< Insert the session descriptions which most apply to your responsibilities. >
< All fees are listed on the registration form. Travel costs vary and should be changed to reflect your costs. >
The full price conference fee is <$xxxx>, but can be reduced $100 by registering before April 18, or registering multiple attendees from < name of your organization >.
Here is the breakdown of conference costs: Roundtrip Airfare: <$xxxx>; Transportation: <$xxxx>; Hotel: <$xxxx>; Meals: <$xxxx>; Conference Fee: <$xxxx>. The total costs associated with attending this conference are an estimated: <$xxxx>.
