Context: We are organising a conference and have a reception beforehand. We are sending electronic invitations about it, how would you say A Reception will precede the conference?

Une réception précédera la conférence ?

Merci beaucoup !

    Sounds OK to me, except for the "précèdera" spelling (it has been only recently reformed, in 1976, but the "é" is still widely used).
    You could also say "la conférence sera précédée d'une réception" (if the conference is supposed to be more important than the reception).
