Diaries out, it’s April and spring has sprung.

Once in a while Team Noodle like to lift up their heads and walk away from the screen for a few hours. Not too long, just a few hours. Our favourite reason to take a break from building great apps for events and fiddling around with RFID wristbands for conferences? To head out to some seriously fun networking events for the event industry.

Fancy doing the same? Here’s our list of the best event industry events in April:
