Tips on Getting Employer Support
Discuss the knowledge you will gain from attending and how it will benefit your work, laboratory, and colleagues.
Highlight the things included with your event registration such as educational sessions, networking opportunities with leaders in the industry to discuss best practices and cost saving measures, and hours on the trade show floor
Consider submitting a Poster to participate in the Scientific Poster Exhibition to highlight work you & your lab have completed.
Be ready with a plan that shows who will cover for you while you are attending the Convention.
- If your employer will be assisting with your expenses, provide an outline of cost estimates for registration, airfare, hotel, meals and transportation.
- Make a list of exhibitors you plan to visit whose products and services would be an asset to your lab. Share any informational material or samples from exhibitors you receive with your colleagues.
Offer to deliver a short presentation upon your return that showcases what you learned during the week so your entire team can benefit from the knowledge you bring home
