    The sentence would be grammatically correct if you ended it with a full stop.

    I would prefer "We hope to see you ...."
    It's only an invitation, so you don't know if the invitee is coming. "We look forward to seeing you ... " is premature.

    Yes - you're right.

    I was just commenting on the grammar aspect of the question.
