Dear Sir or Madam,

Sample Letter Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter in reference to your advertisement published in the “India Times” newspaper on 17th October. I am very curious to know about the professional seminar that you are going to organise as I work in the Information Technology field in Kashmir and I believe this seminar is going to be very useful for me.

The advert gives very few details about your upcoming seminar except that it is meant for the IT people and I need more information to book my participation. In particular, I want to know about the topic covered in the seminar and the trainers who would conduct the sessions. Further, I need to learn about the exact dates and duration of the seminar as I will require to take time off office. Who would be responsible for the accommodation of the participants? If you provide it, what it is likely going to cost? Otherwise, I would appreciate your advice for a suitable place to stay in. Please do not forget to send me a drilled down cost list for a participant in the seminar.

I am looking forward to receiving your reply soon.

Yours faithfully,

Chandanjeet Singh

  1. Dear Sir or Madam,

    I came to know through an advertisement published in “Daily Dawn” newspaper that your team is going to organize a seminar related to “Smart Energy” in the forthcoming weeks. I am quite curious to attend the seminar in order to get some insight about the topic and I believe it will be helpful to me in my career.

    In order to ensure my participation, I would like to know about the exact registration procedure, when and where the seminar is going to be held and its schedule, in particular, what ranges of information and topics will be covered and who would be the main speakers.

    Furthermore, due to my professional activities, I want to know the duration of the seminar. Finally, what about the accommodation? Would it be provided by you? If so, then how much would it cost and what type of facilities would be catered during the stay?

    I am looking forward to hearing your response.

    Yours faithfully,

    H. M Hasni
