Justification Toolkit

When you propose attending SPAR 3D Expo & Conference, it is key to focus specifically on what you will bring back to the organization. SPAR 3D is the place to learn everything about 3D sensing, processing and visualization and see the solutions that will aide your work.


  • State your organization’s specific goals or needs, and then state how specific components of the conference will help meet those needs.
  • Which topic tracks or specific sessions have particular relevance to your department’s or organization’s current priorities and goals? Are there sessions that will provide insight into a particular challenge or goal your organization is facing right now, or expects to face in the next 12 months? Identify specifically what you can use, and how.
  • Which of the sessions are most relevant to your professional development goals or your organization’s expectations of you? What new skill(s) or approach(es) will you bring back?


  • Be sure to state how SPAR 3D will enable you to meet and interact with industry professionals in similar roles and organizations from around the country. You will be able to take the pulse of what your peer organizations are talking about and planning for, and how they are accomplishing their specific goals.


  • Explain that the conference showcases over 200 vendors focused on 3D technologies to support people working in industries such as: architecture, building & construction, surveying & mapping, civil & transportation infrastructure, facilities management, utilities, manufacturing, law enforcement & forensics, and many more. Visiting with vendors and attending product preview presentations will allow you to gain a broader perspective of the tools and solutions available to you and the company.
  • Note that this is also an opportunity to collect first-hand information, and compare competing products and gain knowledge of the companies you may be wanting to evaluate.


  • After the conference is the perfect time to explain that attending SPAR 3D was beneficial for not only you as an attendee, but for your company as a whole. Approximately two weeks post-event, all full conference pass holders will receive an email with PDF versions of the presentation slides.
