Austin, October (exact date TBD). I intend to plan a longer trip to the US
around this summit, and I think at least one other core dev should go
there. So this one has my preference.

Sticking to the ones in the second half of the year and in the US or
Western Europe:

PyData Berlin, June 30 - July 2
PyData Seattle July 5 -7

Other options:

JupyterCon, New York, August 22-25
Strata Data Conference, September 25-28
