Statistically improbable phrases

"As you are the prominent expert in the field of Environmental Biotechnology, we cordially welcome you to deliver a speech in the Congress."

Not the sort of thing I usually expect to see in my inbox. Neither am I tempted by the offer of a trip to China to find out if this is a real meeting. (Googling suggests the meeting might actually exist, but it's primarily a money-raising venture.)
