While many of us will be dodging the summer heat and relying on desperately bulk-scheduled messages to tide over the first half of January, there’s still time to consider the exciting events and dates taking place in January.
Hopefully, these days will give you some inspiration when coming up with your content calendar for 2016!
Check out your local calendar to double check these events are still on these dates if you’re keen to use them!
