In order for campaigns to remain current, it can be useful to base your ideas around significant events taking place throughout January 2016. 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 2016, to help you stay organised and to ensure that you don’t miss out on any opportunities.
