Dear [your manager’s name],

I’d like your permission to attend the West Coast’s largest React conference, Reactathon (reactathon.com), from March 30 - 31 in San Francisco. The conference features some of the biggest names in the React community from companies including GitHub, Eventbrite, Robinhood, Khan Academy, and more. It is held over a weekend, so no work will be missed. Attending this conference will be beneficial for both my personal growth and our company’s front-end knowledge in the following areas:

Here’s an estimated breakdown of costs:

Registration fee……………………………….. $699

Total………………………………………………… $699

After the conference, I’ll circulate a report that will include a summary of what I learned and a set of recommendations to increase our team’s productivity and improve our front-end infrastructure.

Thank you for considering my request to attend this event.

Looking forward to your reply,

[your name]
