Sample Letter to Justify Your Visit to SOUTHTEC

Greenville, SC | October 24-26, 2023

Dear Insert the Name of Your Manager or Supervisor:

I would like to attend SOUTHTEC 2023 in Greenville, South Carolina, on October 24-26, 2022. SOUTHTEC brings the creators of advanced manufacturing technologies together in a collaborative environment that includes hands-on demonstrations on the latest manufacturing solutions, numerous informational sessions on critical industry topics and several networking opportunities.

The top technologies featured at the show include:

  • Cutting Tools & Accessories
  • Turning Machines, Lathes & Turning Centers
  • 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing
  • Automated Manufacturing & Assembly
  • Controls, CAD/CAM Software
  • Deburring & Edge Finishing
  • Drilling & Tapping Machines
  • Measurement Inspection & Test
  • Lean Manufacturing
  • Welding

At a time where we are focused on staying strong, building our business, optimizing our equipment, and being poised for future opportunity, I think it’s vital to learn about the latest manufacturing technologies and how other companies have implemented them successfully. Attending SOUTHTEC will help us explore new equipment, software and services so we can outpace our competition. Here are three initiatives where we could benefit:

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

My goal is to return with new knowledge that can serve us for years to come. When we face an engineering challenge, something I discovered or someone I met at SOUTHTEC will be at the top of my mind.

I intend to create a time-efficient plan for my visit using the event’s planning app. I can also give exhibitors my contact information, so we can start a dialogue in advance of the event. I’ll be able to email you a show floor map, so we can make certain we are on the same page about what I need to see and learn at the show.

By attending the SOUTHTEC, I will:

  • Learn about cutting-edge technologies and processes
  • Identify real-world applications that are working for manufacturers today
  • Ensure our company is up to speed on how the manufacturing technologies can improve efficiencies, save time and lower costs
  • Gain connections to call upon when troubleshooting and planning new products

The event offers discounted hotel rooms and airfare rates for my travel. I think you’ll agree that this is a small investment when we consider the value I can bring back. Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to your reply.
