English term or phrase: welcome Mr (plural)...
Buongiorno,

mi scuso in anticipo per la domanda banalissima ma poiché non credo mi sia mai venuta occasione di dover usare il plurale di Mr (mister) ed internet offre diverse versioni, per es

1.- Messr.
2.-Usare solo Mr seguito dai due nomi

vorrei sapere qual' è appunto il modo corretto, e chi meglio di voi può fornirmelo?

Grazie.

disagree  Tom in London: In today's world we would say "Welcome to Tom X, Dick Y, and Harry Z". My point is that in English, it is not required to say "Mr" or even more absurdly, "Messrs". Not in 2013.

  -> The asker is using the term "Mr", this is obviously required for his translation.

disagree  Tony M: I agree with Tom; it is not common in modern EN to use Mr, even less Messrs, in this sort of context. / Other than in certain very narrow contexts, we just don't. Asker's use of 'welcome' suggests it is not one of those contexts.

  -> But the question was regarding how to make "Mr" plural, not how to refer to unknown people: "usare il plurale di Mr (mister)..."// I see your point, but the question was regarding using "Mr" in the plural, there was not lot of info given on the context.
