when you would/will be available?

Meeting in person would allow us to fully evaluate wants and needs for future partnership. The team is available to meet any time over the next three weeks. Please let me know when you would be available, at your earliest convenience.

what 's the difference between "when you would be available" and "when you will be available"?

the talker is not sure whether he/she has the time for meeting ? so the talker uses "would" ? a polite way to ask a peron?

if the talker uses "will" , the talker is certain he/she has the time for meeting ?

    Would is more polite, because it recognizes the possibility that the person might not want to meet or might be unavailable.
