I would like to go for 'Be Healthy! Be Happy' talk by David Beckham.

I believe 'go for' is not the correct phrase.

I believe it should be 'attend'.

Am I correct?
I agree. Or go to. And add a definite article or demonstrative.
Hi Micawber

Could you please elaborate on "Or go to. And add a definite article or demonstrative"? Many thanks.

"go for" seems fine to me:

See 3a here:
- go for

: to pass for or serve as <the bits of silvered glass that went for mirrors in those days -- Charlotte Upton>

: to try to secure : aim at <in money matters he went for the last penny -- V.S.Pritchett>

3 a
: to give support or approval to : FAVOR, ACCEPT<I can go for no such resolution as this -- B.F.Wade> b : to have or display an active interest in or liking for <she went for him in a big way -- Chandler Brossard>

: to attack or assail physically or verbally <his opponent went for him when his back was turned>


and especially 3 here:
3. Aim or try for, especially making a vigorous effort.
For example, They're going for the league championship. This idiom is also put as go for it, as in When Steve said he'd like to change careers, his wife told him to go for it.
I would like to go to the 'Be Healthy! Be Happy' talk by David Beckham.
OK, yes, MM is definitely right if you'd like to attend that talk.

However, if you want to follow the guidelines in it, "go for the principles in it" could be an alternative.
