If you do find any good ways to convince them, let me know as well.
I am in the same boat as swt88, although my company has the line "We want to expand what we are doing, so figure out what you need to do to", then when I say "send me to Mercury World for their presenations and brain-=sharing sessions", I get the speal "QA doesn't need training or conferences, just search the web" :/

Anybody have any good ideas on how to justify to my company to send me to Mercury World?

Since AutomatedQA (the makers of TestComplete) is based in Las Vegas, tell them you will be able to come back with a product that will save them lots of MONEY, since HP is about to shut down all the Mercury products.
TC from what I hear is a lot less expensive compared to Mercury.
(Disclaimer: I am a user of TestComplete, but not one of their sales staff. Just using the coincidence to help get sikologik a free trip to Vegas.)
