Any of you that follow the KDR blog know we love learning new things and developing our industry knowledge, one way we love doing this is through events and conferences. The KDR team have attended plenty throughout the year already and are sure to be at more soon.

With it being the summer holidays the UKs industry events and conferences scene is a little quiet but there are plenty across the world for those jetsetters.
