Sample Letter

Dear {Name},

I’d like to attend the upcoming Open Source in Finance Forum taking place 26 June 2024, in London, England. I’ve researched many conferences and found that this is the ONLY conference dedicated to driving collaboration and innovation in financial services through open source software and standards.

Nearly 500 talented individuals from across the ecosystem will gather to share learnings, highlight innovation, and engage in stimulating and thought-provoking conversations about how to best (and safely) leverage open source software to solve industry challenges.

Here’s how I envision my attendance at Open Source in Finance Forum strengthening our company:

  • Open Source in Finance Forum offers a variety of sessions, including presentations, hands-on tutorials, deep-dive technical lectures, and visionary keynotes from industry leaders. Attending these sessions will allow me to build my knowledge and learn from other community members on best practices. Session topics will include Open Source Readiness, Interoperability / FDC3 (Desktop Interoperability), and Open Source Software (OSS) Supply Chain Security.
  • The infamous “hallway track” at Open Source in Finance Forum will allow me to meet the top technical minds in the ecosystem. I hope to meet others that might face the same challenges and problems I do so that we can work together to solve technical issues now and in the future. Creating strategic partnerships at the event could be very useful in the future when we encounter new challenges.

You can learn more about the conference and view previous events’ keynotes and other videos here.

Included in the registration fee is access to all keynotes and sessions, access to the sponsor showcase, hallway tracks and lounges, continental breakfast, and morning and afternoon breaks. It also includes entrance to the evening events, including the onsite reception, and other networking events.

I would be happy to write a post-conference report detailing what I’ve learned, and recommend any changes we can implement to improve our practices.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I hope we can make this opportunity work.

{Your Name}
