    On behalf of the organisers, I thank you a lot, sir, for squeezing this program into your tight schedule.

    Can you suggest a way to replace ' a lot' with a more idiomatic term without, of course, switching 'I thank you' ?

    This is just a personal opinion, but I think "sincerely" would do the trick. Profusely might be overkill, but I'd be interested to hear what others have to say about that. You could also say,
    "On behalf of the organisers, please accept our sincere gratitude for squeezing this program into your tight schedule."

    I really like everything Cathy Rose said. :)

    You could say:

    ...I thank you very much, sir...

    That's simple and very acceptable.
