How to write invitations to events and functions

Ob Sie Mitarbeiter zum Sommerfest oder Kunden zu einer Messe einladen, mit diesen Tipps von Secretary Today gelingen Ihnen die Einladungen mühelos.

There are numerous events and functions that you have to invite people to in the course of the business year:

  •  the opening of a new subsidiary
  •  the introduction of a newservice
  • a party for staff
  • the retirement of a senior executive
  • a trade fair

In the English-speaking world, formal invitations to dinners, openings or retirements are usually printed on A5 or A6 high quality paper or cards.




At the end of English language invitations you will often find the letters RSVP. These stand for the French ‘Répondez s’il vous plait’, or ‘please reply’, which is the equivalent of the German UAwg (Um Antwort wird gebeten). There is no
English abbreviation for ‘please reply’.
If the occasion calls for a more personal invitation, write a letter on good quality paper.
Use these opening and closing phrases to make your invitation warm and professional at the same time.
