Re: Apttus Accelerate User Summit Proposal

I’m writing to ask for approval to attend Apttus’ annual user summit, Accelerate 2017, May 2-4th in San Francisco, CA. This annual event will be host to a community of Quote-to-Cash product experts who will be on hand to share best practices, product updates, training, industry trends and more.

The expo will feature key solutions and is an ideal place to pick up new ideas to drive more productivity from our implementation and maximize the return on our investment.

Here’s an approximate breakdown of conference costs:

This conference should deliver incredible value. Please keep in mind the earlier I can register, the cheaper it will be. I’ll also submit a post-conference report that will include an executive summary, major takeaways, tips, and a set of recommendations to maximize the return on our current investments. I can also share relevant information with key personnel throughout the company.
Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to your reply.
