Dear [manager name],

I am reaching out to ask to attend the 10th Annual Yello Conference, STRIVE 2019, which is being held May 1 – 2, 2019 in Chicago. Hosted by talent acquisition technology company, Yello, STRIVE 2019 will bring together 250+ talent acquisition professionals for workshops, expert presentations and information sharing to enhance recruitment practices and help our organization hire top talent.

This year, the conference theme is “recruiting for tomorrow.” The event is a unique opportunity to gain knowledge at a conference exclusively dedicated to talent acquisition, recruitment marketing and recruitment operations. The 2019 conference will offer:

Discussion of emerging trends: Covering a wide range of subjects all tied to talent acquisition, the conference will equip our team with knowledge and best practices to stay ahead of the curve in talent acquisition.

Case studies from the world’s leading brands: Leaders at top companies will offer a step-by-step view into how their teams leverage recruitment technology, enabling us to apply these same practices in our office.

Sneak preview of new technology: Through direct access to Yello consultants and product experts, I will have the chance to preview new technologies and see the Yello product roadmap, helping our team prepare for the latest in recruitment tech.

Networking with 250+ peers: With hundreds of talent acquisition professionals in one room, I will network with and learn from peers across every industry. These networking opportunities will enable me to discuss [insert challenge you would like to discuss with peers], learn how they are solving similar challenges and collaborate on solutions.

Attending STRIVE 2019 will be a valuable opportunity for me, our team and our organization—I will return with recommendations to propel our talent acquisition strategy for the future.
