    held, to be held

    As we will participate in the conference to be held from 14th to 18th next month in Singapore, we will be grateful if you could supply us with detaild information about the meeting.

    Is it better to use " to be held" instead of "held"? Some books say that " to be held" has a "fututre tense" sense, but "held" a past tense sense, is it true?
