Dear {insert title and name}

I am writing to request your approval to attend ICT Infrastructure 2019 (, an up-and-coming ICT conference and exhibition taking place from 28 to 29 August 2019 at Emperors Palace, Gauteng.

This conference will bring together the industry’s brightest minds and experts, giving me the wonderful opportunity to learn about the latest ICT infrastructure technologies, gain professional, in-depth insights into industry developments, learn best practices, industry trends and forecasts, and network with industry experts.

The conference’s multi-disciplinary approach to ICT, along with its data centre site visits and exhibition featuring leading companies will greatly advance my professional development. Furthermore, it will allow our organisation to better leverage and maximise new information technology to our benefit, and will enable us to keep up-to-date with the ever-evolving ICT industry.

Our organisation will benefit from my attendance of ICT Infrastructure 2019 in that:

  • I will gain expert insight into the latest technology, trends, applications, opportunities, and best practices that will position our organisation with a competitive edge.
  • With the conference’s theme focused on ICT infrastructure for driving economic development in South Africa, the new knowledge gained and relationships established could help us unlock new revenue streams and accelerate our impact and growth.
  • The event is endorsed by the SAIEE and IITPSA, ensuring a high concentration of industry experts and peers in the sector. This will make this event a very efficient place to network and connect with relevant people and companies to unlock new relationships and business potential for our organisation.
  • Our organisation’s presence will in turn also assert our expertise and brand in the industry.
  • The conference is in the process of gaining accreditation for 2 CPD points by the SAIEE.

I will share the most important lessons and recommendations that will benefit our organisation upon my return, as well as share my conference materials with colleagues and key personnel throughout the company.
