Justify your trip

You probably already know that your investment of time and money in CIRP CATS 2016 will pay for itself and then some. Need help convincing your manager? Here are some arguments that might become useful.

 

> Educational opportunities
No matter how experienced you are in your field, everyone can learn. Exposure to a variety of points of view can lead to new ideas and trends that can impact future results. Improve your technical proficiency and knowledge by visiting CIRP CATS 2016. 

> Networking with peers
These conferences provide a great opportunity to network. Researchers from other regions of the country can become valuable resources for referrals and best-practices. New people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level.

> Encounter new products and technology solutions
Too often people shy away from the trade show exhibit hall at conferences.  They fear that they will have to talk to sales people, but these industry suppliers are some of the best people for you to get to know if you want to learn more about the current business climate.  Discover innovative products and services in the field of assembly technologies and systems. Understand where the industry is headed.

> Position yourself as an expert
When you are active in your field of research, you can develop a reputation as an expert to your peers.  Those who are engaged over the long term are often asked to speak at events and to write articles for collaborative publications. If your strategy is to be the best-kept secret in your business community, you will be missing a valuable opportunity. 

> Have fun
Being in academia should be rewarding and fun. The CIRP CATS 2016 conference adds a layer of enjoyment to managing your career growth by mixing a social aspect into your learning. Taking an extra day at the beginning or end of the trip to explore or visit friends in the region is also a great way to maximize the investment in travel.  Never underestimate the power of a little fun mixed with some interesting people!
