    To Whom it may concern.

    I trust that you are well.

    We are looking for a conference venue for our AGM. We are about 100-150 guests, for the 14th November for 2 days.
    We will need room for a welcome cocktail the first night and then the next day we will need space for workshops and speeches.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards
    Sam
