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'm happy to discuss the report further if you're interested.

No I never go to events or conferences for work. I can't imagine how conference is like.

I attended a lot of conferences when I worked as a journalist, but I didn’t write letters about them. I had to write news for my newspaper. Now I haven’t many reasons to go to conferences. But occasionally I still go there for the sake of curiosity. I also occasionally participate in organizing of TEDX conference as a volunteer.

Actually, I had to organize a conference a year ago. Although it was challenging it became a great job experience in the end. As far as I remember it was really nervous but manage myself to carry out the conference without major problems. I think those kind of events represent a wonderful opportunity to meet people and made contacts that may help to enhance the business in the future.
