Dear [Recipients Name],
I would like to send you the details of my travel plans for my visit to Denver to meet with the Board of Directors and present my business proposal. I appreciate the offer to have Ms. Jasmine Trent, your assistant, meet me when I arrive to take me to the office.

Further things to consider when writing confirmation letters to colleagues
Confirmation letters are letters sent by individuals, businesses, or companies to summarize details such as verbal agreements between two parties, job interviews, or appointments. Broadly speaking, they are written to verify certain details upon request or recognize previous agreements. A confirmation letter can serve as a formal document to confirm the receipt of orders, schedule of an important appointment, or recruitment of new employees. It can also be used to confirm travel arrangements and reservations and in instances such as immigration to confirm marital status. Confirmation letters are mostly used by businesses to keep formal records and to avoid conflicts regarding transactions or agreements.
Confirmation letters are brief and contain only the necessary information. State what is being confirmed clearly and accurately. If you are verifying an employee's position in the company, for example, take note of his/her official title. Be cautious about times, dates, and places. Include all relevant details and anything else that needs to be confirmed. If necessary, restate the previously agreed terms and conditions to ensure that there are no conflicts or misunderstandings in the future. Close the letter with a positive remark and your signature. This letter should be printed on the company's letterhead.
Letters to Colleagues
Letters to colleagues are, simply, letters written to coworkers. These letters are written in a business or professional setting for different purposes. Maybe you want to thank a coworker for doing you a favor - write a thank-you letter. You want to congratulate him/her for a promotion - write a congratulation letter. Perhaps you want to apologize for doing something wrong - write an apology letter, or may be you have found a new job, and it's time to say goodbye - write a farewell letter. Although some colleagues may find writing letters a tedious process, it is a great way to maintain a strong working relationship.
Most letters to colleagues are informal. You really don't need to use all that formal jargon to people you know pretty well ? do you? Begin your letter with a warm and friendly salutation and the proper name of the recipient. Clearly state the purpose of your letter. Be specific and know exactly what you are talking about. Use clear language which the recipient can easily understand. Maintain a friendly and pleasant tone. Close the letter positively and with a note of anticipation that the recipient will take the necessary action.
