    An invitation

    Hello,
    I am doing an invitation. Is it right to say: "Welcome to Peace Forum at University of X to hear Mr. Z and Mrs. Y"?
    Thank you for your help!

    the Peace Forum
    X University or the University of X
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: An invitation

    For an invitation, I'd use: "We invite you to the Peace Forum ... etc." or "You're invited to the Peace Forum ... etc." instead of "Welcome to ... etc."

    You'd use Welcome to ... when they arrive.
