Justification Toolkit

We understand it can be difficult to ask for approval to attend ABX 2018, November 28-29, so we have created this Justification Toolkit to assist with gaining approval. We encourage you to review the materials in this section to gain a greater understanding of ABX and how to communicate the value it can provide when attempting to hack attendance approval from your manager.

ABX has created 4 simple steps in order to gain funding for your attendance in one convenient location. With expert advice, pre-conference justification documents and post-conference reporting templates, your manager or supervisor is sure to appreciate the investment made into your training and development as well as to your company's success.

Below are the contents of the Justification Toolkit to help you explain why you should be attending ABX 2018.

Remember: You should be ready to answer any question that your supervisor may have. After you provide all the necessary information to your supervisor, he/she will assess the information before making the decision. Your supervisor’s decision will likely depend on the information you provide and how well you sell the benefits of attending the show. Good luck!
