Dear [Enter Name],
I would like your approval to attend The Icimo Experience LIVE in Raleigh, NC from April 8-10, 2019. This event is dedicated to data specialists in their organization and will specifically focus on providing insight, strategic inspiration, education and connections I need to continue to maximize our technology and expand our organization’s data opportunities.
The Icimo Experience LIVE is not your typical conference. It’s the first-of-its-kind and has an incredibly reasonable conference fee considering the volume of information and exposure I will receive. The entire Icimo team including executives, data analysts and customer service representatives will be on hand to share insights, best practices and new product innovations. Additionally, senior representatives from the leading BI platforms Tableau and Alteryx and Automated Insights will be in attendance to connect and share the future roadmap of business intelligence and vision for their products.
While attending, I’ll have the opportunity to meet and network with like-minded industry professionals who are maximizing their Tableau and Alteryx investments. Between the content presented, learning sessions, networking and keynotes, I plan to strengthen my skills to further improve our strategic position. I will have exposure to:
- 9+ carefully selected educational sessions from Icimo executives, data specialists, product experts, and valued customers.
- 3 Keynote presentations featuring the latest business intelligence and product trends, new features, and thought leadership from Icimo, Tableau, Alteryx and Automated Insights executives. A special guest from the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation will also be presenting.
- One-on-one consultation with data specialists for Tableau and Alteryx solutions.
- Network with like-minded peers to exchange ideas with people who have the same role or interests.
