JSConf EU wrote a step by step guide for convincing your company to buy you a conference ticket
TALK BUSINESS. THERE’S AN ROI IN ATTENDING A CONFERENCE.
When you approach your manager to ask for a JSConf EU ticket, know that you are not the only one who benefits from spending a day watching talks and sipping free coffee. Companies profit in many ways too – after all, their employees grow their knowledge, motivation and network!
Companies are usually aware of this, and you might already have a conference budget in your contract. Maybe your manager actively helps you to grow, and encourages you to attend events. But not all of us get that support handed on a silver platter – so know your arguments, and you can convince even the most skeptical boss.
