Dear [Boss’ Name],
I am writing to request your approval for me to attend SIGGRAPH Asia 2024 this December in Tokyo, Japan as I strongly feel it would be an invaluable investment of time and financial resources on knowledge and technical skills advancement.

The annual event, which rotates around the Asian region, attracts the most respected technical and creative people from all over the world who are excited by research, science, art, animation, gaming, interactivity, education, and emerging technologies.
Both a conference and a trade exhibition, SIGGRAPH Asia 2024 will allow me to see, meet, and interact with the computer graphics and interactive techniques community around the world. I will also be able to expand my network and connect with potential partners and buyers in the industry.
The event promises a presentation of the latest technologies and techniques in our field and a strong program line-up that would stir curiosity, advance technical skills, and reignite passion.
With your approval, I will be able to:
LEARN: SIGGRAPH Asia features vast learning opportunities across various conference programs including Computer Animation Festival, Courses, Technical Papers, Art Gallery, Art Papers, Emerging Technologies, Games, XR, Poster, Keynotes, Featured Sessions, Real-Time Live! and many more, presented by over 400 speakers. Giving me the chance to learn from the best in our industry and hone my technical knowledge, skills, and productivity.
