Meeting planning can be a challenge, so a quick response shows respect for the organizer as well as for the other attendees. If you are accepting, be clear in your response so that the other recipients will understand that you are accepting, while also ensuring that you have all the information you need to prepare for the meeting.
Review Before Responding Take a minute or two to read the meeting invitation carefully and to double-check your own calendar. If you send a confirmation that you later need to withdraw, this can make you look unprofessional.
If you aren't sure whether you can make the meeting, reply promptly with an explanation and a date when you will know whether or not you can attend.
This lets the sender know that you've received the message, and it helps the sender coordinate the necessary logistics. Thank you for including me in this meeting. I need to check on a couple of things before I can let you know whether or not I'll be able to attend.
I will be certain to send my response no later than EOD tomorrow. Confirm Attendance Details If you plan to attend, say so at the beginning of your message, so that the meeting organizer doesn't need to dig through your communication.

Tip If the meeting place is not in your office, nor in the office of the meeting organizer, then clarify the exact location in your response, by noting the street, cross street, and perhaps the exact address of where you will meet. Keep in mind that large chain coffee shops and restaurants may have multiple locations within a small geographic area or even on the same street.
Inform of Potential Conflicts If there is a possibility that you won't be able to attend the meeting, mention this after you have affirmed your plans to attend. Not only is this the polite thing to do, it also provides the meeting planner with information that can help her decide whether or not to either reschedule the meeting at a time when everyone is certain that they can attend.
You can also offer an alternative to attending in person, such as using conference call software to attend the meeting remotely.
My plan is to be at the meeting, but there is a small possibility that I may need to cancel because of a family situation. If I do need to cancel, I will let you know as soon as possible. If you think it is wiser for me to instead reschedule, please let me know that as soon as is convenient for you.
As an alternative, I may be able to attend via Skype. Let me know what you think. Request Clarifications If you have any questions about the meeting, include them in your reply.
