Justification Toolkit

"SAME SBC is the single biggest factor in the ongoing success of our company. The networking opportunities are priceless and the ability to talk one on one with so many government representatives will keep us coming back every year."
-Bob Sidoti, ESA South

We’re excited that you’re looking to incorporate SBC into your schedule and want to support your business case to help you attend.  As part of these efforts, we’ve put together this Attendee Justification Toolkit, providing you with must-know information about the event for you and your supervisor.

We hope you find this toolkit useful in making your case for attending SBC this November 15-19, 2021, in Atlanta, GA. This premier event includes educational, one-on-one appointments, and networking opportunities to help further your career.

We can’t wait to be together again, and for you to experience SBC! Even if you can't be us in person, or just not ready or able to travel, we hope to see you virtually. We'll have the same great content experience for you.

We look forward to connecting with you!
