    look forward to meet/meeting

    Dear all,

    "I am available at your convenience and look/looking forward to meet/meeting with you."

    Which of the above choice is grammatically correct?

    Thank you,

    Looking forward to sg is more cordial than to look forward to sg.
    'To' is a preposition and not an infinitive marker. 'To' takes an object, a gerund:
    look/-ing forward to seeing.

    so the correct sentence is:

    I am available at your convenience and looking forward to meeting with you.

    Is that right?

    do I need to add a "am" between (and) & (looking) ?
