You’re ready to attend Connected 2018. Now let’s get your boss on board.

You have a lot to gain from an event like Connected 2018. Industry insights. Networking. Collaboration with peers. But maybe your manager isn’t convinced Connected 2018 is worth it.

They might not know that hotel costs for Connected 2018 are only $209 a night with tax. Maybe they haven’t heard that the conference includes two breakfasts, one lunch, and one dinner, so the cost for meals is low. Or maybe they haven’t heard that transportation is included and attendees can tour The Star for free, which is a $150 value! And don’t forget about our buy-one-get-one free registration deal!

If your boss is still not convinced, we’re here to help. Copy and paste the letter below in an email to your manager to help explain why Connected 2018 is the best tool to help you succeed.

Convince Your Boss


I would like your approval to attend’s Connected 2018 event, May 21-23, in Dallas, Texas. This event is dedicated to Certified Power User Training using software and specifically focuses on providing the education and connections I need to be even more successful in my job.

I’ve researched many conferences, and this is the conference to attend for brokers and transportation professionals who want to expand their skills, solve technical issues with the best and brightest in the industry, and to learn and collaborate with software. In fact, as a Certified Power User, I’ll be one of a few select brokers nationwide keyed into methodology driving the most innovative and successful brokers in the industry.

I’ll also have the opportunity to meet and network with peers who are focused on the broker experience in their own roles. Between the content presented in the sessions, trainings, and keynotes, I plan to strengthen my skills in:

  • Moving freight quickly and efficiently
  • Competitively pricing freight
  • Protecting our business
  • Managing and growing our business
  • Becoming a Certified Power User of

The investment to attend is $497.50 plus the hotel. But if two of us attend (you would take the specially designed Executive Track), the cost is $995 and includes both of our registrations.

I appreciate this opportunity and look forward to showing you more about how Connected 2018 will benefit our bottom line.
