Convince your boss

The 31st Annual EAIE Conference and Exhibition is your opportunity to network, gain new knowledge and find new partners. This step-by-step plan and handy toolkit will help you set goals and define objectives so you can justify your organisation’s investment in your attendance and secure your spot at our conference.

Your step-by-step plan

1. Delve into the programme

Familiarise yourself with the pre-conference workshops, sessions, networking opportunities and keynote speakers. Which sessions would be beneficial for you to attend? Filter the programme according to your interests.

2. Create a proposed agenda

Download the toolkit from this page and use the session sheet to put together your personalised agenda, then use the template letter and expense sheet to create a detailed overview of your time at the conference. 

3. Meet with key contacts

Networking is at the top of the participants' agenda and a key reason they attend our conference each year. Check out our exhibitor’s list and networking events. Create a line-up of suggested meetings that could benefit your institution’s partner relations.

4. Share your insights

Highlight to your manager that sending you to EAIE Helsinki 2019 will also have a positive impact on the rest of your team. Share session presentations and case studies with your team. Offer to connect them with new contacts.
