I have budget about $3700 for camera+lense+flash+memory card. Most of my shooting will cover conference, meeting and travelling (landscape and people).

So far doing research i narrowed down
- Body: Canon 6D (full frame + i heard about the silence shutter which make me less stand out during conference \)
- Lenses: Canon 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM + Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM
- Flash: Speedlite 430EX2
- Memory card: Lexar 600x 32GB SDHC UHS-I


Is there any thing wrong with my choice?

Your lens selection has covered quite a bit on the range. i dont see anything wrong, but most importantly is to know your equipment well and use them at the appropriate situation

If you're trying to lie low and not stand out, using a flash might not be the best choice ._.

Are those lenses good for my current budget or there are better options from sigma or tamron? Since the canon 6d doesnt have buit in flash, may as well get a flash just to be sure.

For what you are intending to shoot, it is definitely good enough.

All good.

2c: you mentioned landscape while travelling, so might consider getting a wide angle if you are really into it (and if budget permits). If you're not a hardcore landscape person, then the 24-105 already cover a reasonably good range.

I would drop the 70-200 unless u need the length
I does indeed feel 200mm is a bit too much. However I am currently using 24-135mm lens and sometime i have trouble shooting conference where speaker is too far away and i cant move closer.

FYI. The diff in getting a close up btwn a 135 and 200 is not that much when shooting from far. You might wanna check out the various Field Of View simulators to get a better picture.
