With budgets extremely tight and an economic recovery still uncertain, it's become increasingly important for companies to measure the return on investment of their meetings and events. That's why ALTA has created a Return on Investment planner to help you track the value of the educational and networking opportunities you'll experience at the Annual Convention.

ALTA's ROI planner will help you illustrate to you or your boss, your goals and takeaways for attending the Annual Convention, and how they translate to increasing business for your company. ALTA's Annual Convention is the largest gathering of title professionals each year, providing a highly cost-effective method for gaining education, certification, networking and awareness training.

Why does business travel remain a vital component for the C-suite executive? For every dollar invested in business travel, companies realize $12.50 in incremental revenue and $3.80 in new profits, according to the Oxford Economics USA. According to the study, curbing business travel can actually reduce a company's profits - and competitiveness - for years.

Building a strong case for attendance is easier than you might think. First, identify the specific challenges of your particular workplace. Then, review ALTA's educational sessions and events and look for knowledge, ideas and connection opportunities that address your individual business needs.

Put your case in writing and propose your plan to your agency owner or manager. Tell them how attending the Annual Convention will help your company with specific issues or challenges. Tell them whom you are meeting with in the Exhibit Hall and how those connections will help you and your organization keep up with the hottest trends in the industry.
