    Post attend to or attend

    Hi
    I have a doubt with the verb "attend". I don' know wether I need to add the preposition "to" in the following sentence or not:

    We are pleased to invite you to attend the International Conference or

    ... to attend to the International Conference

    Thanks a lot

    There should be no 'to'.
    'Attend to' means 'pay attention to'.

    I am not a teacher.

    "We are pleased to invite you to attend the International Conference..." should be used, not attend to.

    The sentence would probably work even better if you did not include the word "attend" at all.

    "We are pleased to invite you to the International Conference..." would probably work better.
