Hi Everyone

Welcome to the April issue of What's New at DeskDemon! Well it's not long now until Easter and the Royal Wedding - and here at DeskDemon we're looking forward to both! Two long weekends back to back is pretty unusual - let's hope the recent gorgeous sunshine makes a comback. Let us know what you think about Kate and Will's wedding - are you going to be glued to the TV - or even having a party? Click HERE to create a new blog.

Ok - on to our offers and competitions. How about a £250 Amazon Gift Voucher for starters. All you have to do is complete a quick survey about your meeting needs for Regus and you could be a winner. AF International just love to keep your desk and computers clean with their specialised product ranges. You could win a Digital Camera by completing their survey.

Also up for grabs is a delicious goody bag from Kraft Foods (naughty but nice), the chance to win a Nespresso Citiz coffee machine when you book meetings with Crowne Plaza or Holiday Inn, and designer shoes courtesy of Brother.

And don't forget to make a note in your diary for RSVP 2011 Event Showcase - a must for any PA involved in organising events. It takes place on 19-20 April.

Remember - DeskDemon is now on Facebook AND Twitter so please follow us!

So let's take a look at What's New at DeskDemon this month!
