Seminar Cancellation Letter

Not every time things go according to our plans and therefore we have to put them off. Putting off a formal event like a seminar that has been scheduled already requires you to formally inform all the participants and invited guests about it. This is done in order to avoid any inconvenience to the guests and to maintain good relations with them in future.

The letter contains the sender’s information on the top that is then followed by today’s date and then the receiver’s information. The reciever’s information is then followed by the salutation and then the main body of the letter begins. A letter of seminar cancellation is generally issued to all the invitees so it must contain the news of cancellation. This is a seminar cancellation letter so it must be precise and concise without any ambiguity.
