Dear [Boss’ Name],

I am writing to request your approval for me to attend SIGGRAPH Asia 2021 this December in Tokyo, Japan and/or online as I strongly feel it would be an invaluable investment of time and financial resources on knowledge and skill advancement.

SIGGRAPH Asia, the annual computer graphics and interactive techniques 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. The 14th edition of the 4-day Conference (3-day Exhibition) will be going Hybrid to provide attendees all over the world an option to still be a part of the event despite travel uncertainty. The in-person event will be held in Tokyo, Japan at the Tokyo International Forum from 14 - 17 December 2021 and it promises a presentation of latest technologies and techniques in our field and a strong program line-up that would stir curiosity, advance technical skills, and reignite passion. A selected range of conference programs will also be accessible online with networking opportunities. 

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, Demoscene, Emerging Technologies, XR, Poster Presentations, Keynotes, Featured Sessions and many more, presented by over 600 speakers. Giving me the chance to learn from the best in our industry and hone my technical knowledge, skills, and productivity.

INSPIRE: It’s more than just personal development. Knowledge and experiences gained from SIGGRAPH Asia will not stop there, as I will share what I have learnt with the team and apply them to my daily work, so that we can progress and develop together.

Business Matching opportunities are made readily available to connect with exhibitors, presenters and fellow attendees to help expand my professional network.
