June is generally that time of year when things start to look up. The rain is supposed to finally stop. May was a strange month with rainstorms and grey skies and talk of droughts. Now, it looks like the sun is finally coming out and proclaiming the summer - June is the month when summer events and holidays begin. And if you're lucky then there's a park nearby to take your lunch. As work should be that little bit more enjoyable now, DeskDemon is ready with a number of things to help kick off the summer season.
What's new at DeskDemon?
Right on time, we've put together a summer menu for you. Yes, it's getting on for the best time (OK, maybe the only time in our rainy climate) for picnics. Also, so you're not short on conversations during it, we've improved and updated our 'Did You know?' section. We will also present you with the details of London Venue Expo and the Imperial College Cocktail and Canapés Evening, so you have no excuse to stay in during June.

London Venue Expo
, held at ExCeL in London's Docklands, is the only event purely dedicated to showcasing the capital's inspirational venue offering. Whatever your venue needs, London Venue Expo
is a must! Try DeskDemon's Venue Speed Dating
: a fun way to meet a variety of London's venues and see if you fall in love with any! It's been introduced to help break the ice and bring like-minded business people together in an informal way. It will take place twice daily at London Venue Expo and lasts only half an hour of your time. As a thank you for participating, each venue will be offering you a gift!
Our new-look VenueDesk section
should be your first port of call for all of your venue needs. With its great, fresh design and easy-to-use search facility it's the perfect place to find the perfect venue, whatever your needs. As well as a wealth of information on such areas as meeting etiquette, what to look for in a venue, and managing meetings, each venue is described in detail.
It looks like summer has finally arrived, give or take the odd rainstorm, so it's time to shake last year's grass out of the rug and get ready to picnic. Take a look at our summer picnic menu to get you in the mood for food! With sun-dried tomato bruschetta and Dijon mustard and herb-glazed chicken breasts, plus dried cherry and almond biscotti to top it off, a DeskDemon-inspired picnic
is a great way to enjoy a sun-drenched afternoon in the park.
Our 'Did You Know?' section now knows even more. Stocked full with exciting facts, it's a sea of knowledge - there to take the edge off your day. We have now introduced new 'Did You Know?'
categories so that, whatever your interest is, you can find the facts to impress. Perfect to drop in during your summer picnic! Filled with weird and wonderful facts about everything (Did You Know that the world's ants weigh more than all the world's people?!) it's got to be more tempting than work.
That's it for this month, though DeskDemon.com is continually updated, so keep checking it out for new articles and exciting offers. Summer is finally with us, so have a great June!
