August was pretty quiet when it came to networking events for #EventProfs. Thank goodness September is here with all its drizzle and grey skies so that we can really focus on what’s important in life – talking about all things events.
Get your diaries out #EventProfs, for the month is dark and full of terrors.
Oh no wait, that’s Game of Thrones.
Get your diaries out #EventProfs, for the month is full of fantastic opportunities to get social, learn new skills and make some great new connections.
