CTEC 2018

Justification Letter for your Manager (SQL*LIMS user)

I’d like to attend the LabVantage Customer Training and Education Conference (CTEC) scheduled on October 21-26, 2018 in San Diego, CA. A Full Conference Pass at the standard registration rate of $2,200 provides me access to 2 days of training plus 2.5 days of the conference. These 4.5 days of learning will include:

  • 2 days of Training – [enter course titles that suite you best!]
  • Opportunity to network with other SQL*LIMS users
  • Discovering ways to maximize our investment in SQL*LIMS and what to expect during an upgrade to LabVantage 8.4
  • One-on-one consultation with LabVantage experts to discuss any questions or issues
  • Topics designed around QC, R&D, Biobanking and Contract labs
  • Customer success stories from our own and related industries

Focusing on best practices, training and innovations; this is the one conference each year that brings together the entire community of LabVantage experts in one location and is the most cost-effective way to ensure that we’re getting the most from our LIMS investment. By attending, I will learn how to get more from our implementation, resulting in greater ROI for our company.

I’d like to focus on finding solutions or best practices that could benefit the following projects:

  • [add project or initiative]
  • [add project or initiative]
  • [add project or initiative]

Here’s an approximate breakdown of conference costs:

Airfare: $400
Hotel (5 nights at $209): $1,045
Meals (4 days at $50): $200
Standard Registration Fee: $2,200
Total: $3,845

I plan to take advantage of any available discounts to further reduce expenses, such as the group hotel room and shuttle discount. I’ll submit a post-conference report that will include an executive summary, major takeaways, tips, and a set of recommendations to maximize our current investment in LabVantage. I can also share relevant information with key personnel throughout the company.

Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to your reply.
