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,
Nina

I've never attended a meeting or any conference for work, so far I had only attended school seminars when I was in college. However when I had my internship in a hotel, I had taken part in organizing the conference room for our guest meeting and served food around the clock, To be honest that was quite a daunting task.

I have never been to important events or conferences but I have attended siminars which were supposed to be teaching training workshops. Unfortunatelly, I did not learn a lot from them . So, I don’t like attending such events. I prefer to be in places where I would learn new things and make new contacts which would help me become better in my work. I would appreciate to be in places where people share good experiences which are interesting and beneficial for my work.

While I never had the opportunity, I'd love to attend a conference in a different country. This will enable me to broaden my knowledge and deepen my insight. I hope I can make my dream come true in the future. I'm willing to accept all kinds of changes in my position.

I never going to the conference. I feel regret because one of the benefits of my previous company is to attend an international conference and I didn't take the opportunity. This pandemic era make the international conference held online.
