Dear <Decision-Maker Name>,
I would like to request approval to attend RAPID + TCT 2023 – North America’s largest and most influential Additive Manufacturing event – from May 2-4, 2023 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The event offers three full days of exhibits, education programs and valuable networking opportunities and is highly regarded as the industry’s leading forum for those involved in additive manufacturing. RAPID + TCT will enable me to see the latest and greatest innovative solutions, develop my technical skills and expand my knowledge of best practices in our industry.
I can also attend a number of special events and educational sessions that are directly applicable to my work and will allow me to safely network with a variety of manufacturing experts and colleagues from the U.S. and around the world. The sessions are presented by leading industry speakers and cover several technical and managerial topics as well as emerging trends relevant to our business.
If I attend I’ll experience:
- 400+ leading equipment and service providers
- Daily complimentary Keynotes and Thought Leadership Panels
- More than 130 expert-led conference presentations
- High-level networking opportunities on and off the show floor

I will also make any event and exhibitor materials available to my colleagues.
I assure you that my attendance at RAPID + TCT 2023 is a wise investment. Thank you for your consideration.
