    Dear teachers,
    "The meeting/conference/semina will accumulate more than five thousand people."

    Is the word "accumulate" proper in the context? If not, could you please give me a verb that fits to the context above?

    No. It will "attract" more than five thousand people. More than five thousand people will attend.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
