Convince Your Manager to Send You to AU 2022


Attending AU 2022 is an important way to connect to the latest trends, breakthroughs, and insights on the future of your industry. Whether you work in architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, or media, attending AU 2022 can help you build your skills and develop a better understanding of what’s ahead.

That can unlock new possibilities not only for yourself, but your team and your entire company, whether that means scheduling a lunch-and-learn when you get back, walking a colleague through a new workflow, or bringing new perspectives on digital transformation to the next strategy meeting.  

Need help convincing your manager to send you to AU 2022? We’ve put together some tools and resources to start the conversation and make the case, including:

  • A cost calculator to help you estimate your pass, hotel, and airfare expenses.
  • A sample email that you can modify and send to your manager.


Bonus—if you’re an architect that still needs to meet your annual AIA learning requirements, we’ll have more than 200 classes to choose from that are AIA-approved, including seven that are approved for Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) credits. That’s one more reason you can mention.

And while you’re at it, invite your manager to join you—there’s a lot they can gain from attending AU 2022, too. The AU 2022 Executive Pass gives business and industry leaders new ways to connect with others at their level and get priority access to programming, networking events, workshops, and activities just for decision makers.

AU 2022 will be here before you know it. Now is the time to make the case to your company on why they should send you to learn, connect, and grow. And we’ll see you in New Orleans.
