Sample Letter

Dear {Name},

I’d like to attend the upcoming OpenJS World 2022 taking place the week of June 6, in Austin, Texas.  I’ve researched many conferences and found that this is the global conference for JavaScript with both interactive technical training and diverse industry content from community experts.

Over 1,600 talented individuals from across the ecosystem will gather to share learnings, highlight innovation, and discuss the future of JavaScript and related technologies, including development, security, performance, automation & testing, and community building. 

Here’s how I envision my attendance at OpenJS World strengthening our company:

  • OpenJS World offers a variety of sessions, including presentations, hands-on training, deep-dive technical sessions, 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, and find out more on how JS technologies are being used in front end and back end development, mobile, IoT and AI.
  • The infamous “hallway track” at OpenJS World 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 last year’s keynotes and other videos here

If I register before April 8, the fee is only $795. Included in the registration fee is access to all keynotes and sessions, access to the sponsor showcase, hallway tracks and lounges. It also includes entrance to any evening events, including networking events. For an additional fee, I can also attend half-day trainings on Day 0, or Project + Collab Summits on June 9 & 10. 

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}
