Subject: Report on Lumos conference

Dear Jonas,

Thanks for making it possible for me to go to the Lumos conference in London last week. As you know, it is the biggest technology conference in the country and very important to our work.

I learned a lot and I've made some new contacts that will be good for our company. I think we should try to attend the 'Innovation Day' in April as well.

I focused on talks about robotics, as that is our most interesting area at the moment. The presentations on robot 'hands' and robots for hospitals were particularly interesting for us. I'm attaching a detailed report on this new research with some suggestions about how we can use it.

Thanks again for this opportunity. I'm happy to discuss the report further if you're interested.

Best regards,

I believe that, attending to conferences and congregations are very essential to companies and organisation. It would be nice to make some new contacts that will very helpful for them. learning so much and gaining a lot of new information from representations which can be very useful for the companies and researchers. They could be gave you more details about a particular field and subjects that give you a wide of views and ideas and help you to improve.
