Subject: Request to attend Urbanity – The conference for creators of cities in the Asia-Pacific

I am writing to request approval to attend The Urban Developer’s Urbanity conference on October 23-24 in Brisbane, Australia.

Urbanity has been running for a few years and has managed to bring together the very best developers, architects and leaders of the built environment from across the Asia-Pacific.

Here’s some quick facts for you:

  • Urbanity will take place on 23-24 October 2019 in Brisbane, Australia.
  • It will include keynote presentations, panel discussions, case studies and hands-on workshops.
  • The conference is designed to provide practical learning for the industry.
  • It also includes several networking events that will allow me to build new relationships. 

This year, the program will explore eight major themes including:

  • Visionary projects
  • Inspired journeys
  • Form, function and feasibility
  • Circular development
  • Future fundamentals
  • Built for connection
  • Experience economy
  • Wired living

In terms of who I’m likely to meet, here’s just a snapshot of some companies that have been involved over the past couple of years

  • Developers – Lend Lease, Walker Corporation, Grocon, ISPT, Sunland, Gurner, Crown, Mirvac, Stockland…

I would like to seek permission to attend as I think this is a fantastic way for me to develop my professional skills whilst also representing the company from a business development perspective.

I’ll be sure to submit a post-conference report or write a blog post that will include an executive summary, major takeaways, tips and pictures from the conference. You can learn more about the event at weareurbanity.com.au
