Learn about new technologies and network with industry experts!

EDI CON brings the high frequency electronic and high-speed digital design communities together to address the engineering and manufacturing issues that face today’s design engineers.

Hear about actionable techniques in the technical sessions, workshops and panels with topics for spanning the communications, aerospace and defense sectors. Unlike most academic-driven conferences, the EDI CON exhibition and conference are synergistic, with industry experts presenting technical content and displaying the latest solutions in the exhibition.

“Great show. Different from other ones because the sessions were not full of marketing information, but real useful information.” –EDI CON USA 2016 conference attendee and speaker

I would like your approval to attend the Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON), the largest industry driven RF/Microwave, EMC/EMI and high-speed digital technical conference and exhibition taking place October 17-19, 2018 in Santa Clara. This is the best opportunity for me to find out what is new in the industry, improve my technical knowledge through sessions/workshops and meet possible partners and vendors in person, all in one place. This is a very efficient way to accomplish all of these tasks in one trip reducing the costs of otherwise having to travel to many locations over a longer period of time.

I’m interested learning more about <insert areas of technical interest> that are directly applicable to my work and meeting with companies and experts that offer products/services in these areas that would be beneficial to the company. The educational, training and networking opportunities available at EDI CON are well worth the cost transportation, hotel, and meals that will cost <insert cost or list of expenses>. I look forward to your support for my attendance. 

In order to take advantage of the early registration discount, I would greatly appreciate your response by <insert date>. Thanks in advance for your consideration - please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,
