Excellent meeting & conference space at Holiday Inn
Hi Everyone

Welcome to the November issue of What's New at DeskDemon!

The DeskDemon team are constantly on the lookout for great offers for you, and this month is a real winner! So take a look at the fabulous line-up below - and get clicking!

The first is a complete no-brainer - fancy winning a £25 Arcadia Gift Card? (Yes please!) There's one a week to give away, and this is the perfect time of year for a little extra cash for fashion.

Gift cards are the ideal way to thank staff or clients - and the £50 Debenhams Giftcard has added value in the form of a Silver VIP Shopping Spree. What's that? - click here to find out!

Booking a meeting? Then you need to check out what Regus is offering. Not only a free LCD projector, but an amazing 25% off online bookings.

Coffee keeps us all going - but the quality is not always great (click here for the survey results). Nescafe Alegria to the rescue! It's like having your very own coffee house in the office. Best of all - you could win one and without doubt become the most popular person in the workplace - ever!

Labels may not be the most exciting topic - but they are an essential part of a PA's life. Avery's Multi-Function Labels do exactly that - and make your life so much easier. Find out more about them HERE.

Completing our selection this month is a saving of 15% on FedEx international shipments, and an introduction to Club Carson for Business, a must for all companies who regularly book hotels.

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