    in the week or the week

    Are both sentences correct?

    We will look forward to hearing from you the week of January 18, 2016.

    We will look forward to hearing from you in the week of January 18, 2016.

    Re: in the week or the week

    I prefer 'We will look forward to hearing from you in/during the week beginning January 18, 2016'.

    Re: in the week or the week

    For this type of question, it's best if you number your examples.

    Both are incorrect because of the word will. 'We' should be looking forward now to hearing later. Your sentences have 'we' looking forward at the later date (week of 18 January) to hearing from 'you' at some unspecified time.

    Better as: We look forward to hearing from you the week of January 18, 2016. Or: We look forward to hearing from you in the week of January 18, 2016.

    Both mean the same to me.
