Two days at BIOMEDevice Boston will empower you (and your company) for months to come by exposing you to the people, processes, and technologies that’ll move your projects to the next development stage. You already know this show is a must for making valuable connections and staying current in your field — now it's time to convince your boss.

Tip: Focus on what you'll bring back to the team and the value beyond what you get. Keep it short, powerful, and company- or team-focused.

Tips to Make It Happen

When crafting your plan, think about the bottom line: Why should the company budget for your trip and what's the return on the investment?

  • Determine the value – Lay out the specifics on how your attendance will impact current projects, inspire knowledge, and eliminate obstacles.
  • Be solutions-driven – What issues pop up again and again? List exhibitors who could provide the solutions your team needs.
  • Provide a post-show rundown – Offer to deliver a short presentation or write-up on your key takeaways.
  • Plan for your absence – Whether it's working ahead or tapping a colleague to help out, explain how your missed time will be covered.
  • Make it cost-effective – This event is free, but you can still offer to share a hotel room with colleagues or carpool to cut costs.
