May 2019. The month that saw Jon Snow and Daenerys sweep their family ties under the carpet and kiss and makeup. Kind of.
But, much like the writes of Game of Thrones, let’s forget most of what came before, because now June is on its way with all the promise of some great events for #EventProfs. Need to network? Seeking out the social? In search of inspiration? It’s all right here in our list of the best networking events for event professionals.
Apple WWDC Conference & Keynote (June 3-7)

This is where we learn what to expect from the app store over the next 12 months and which features Apple will be working on. Our own Clemi Hardie will be summing up the biggest announcements and what it all means for #EventProfs in an article for Event Industry News, so head over to get an easy to digest rundown of the headlines.
