Attending CTA Technology & Standards Forum in Los Angeles, CA

Hi [NAME],

I’d like to attend the CTA Technology & Standards Forum, which takes place at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel Monday, September 23, 2019-Friday, September 27, 2019 in Los Angeles, CA. It brings together consumer technology product planners, designers, executives and others to discuss where the industry is headed – and should be headed – with respect to important technologies like over-the-top video, augmented/virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and health & fitness tech.

About 200 industry executives are expected to attend. There will be educational sessions about over-the-top video, artificial intelligence and AR/VR, as well as numerous collaborative meetings to discuss industry standards and best practices related to those topics plus health, fitness and wellness tech.

To get a sense of what the Forum is all about, here’s a link to highlights from the spring event, which had a strong focus on health, fitness & wellness tech, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity -

I’m most interested in meeting people whose organizations are facing challenges similar to ours – it’s a great opportunity to learn how they’re addressing some of our same issues. It’s also a great chance to learn where the Consumer Technology Association is heading as its various committees work to grow the consumer technology industry.

The subject matter at the Forum seems particularly relevant to several projects I’m working on now, particularly [PROJECT 1] and [PROJECT 2].

I estimate my attendance at this event will cost [$ HERE], which includes travel, accommodations, and other expenses.
