PR Key Calendar Dates April – June 2017


In order for campaigns to remain current, it can be useful to base your ideas around significant events taking place throughout the year. We advise clients to start preparing for campaigns at least 1 month in advance – so we’ve put together a list of important dates to add to the diary for 2017, to help you stay organised and to ensure that you don’t miss out on any opportunities.
