This time last year, before anyone foresaw the disruption COVID-19 would bring, we published a blog on 2020 dates for your PR diary.

As we get into the swing of 2021 and hope for some normality on the horizon, we’ve once again rounded up some key dates for 2021.

If you would like to brainstorm any research ideas around these dates, please feel free to get in touch with a member of the team at [email protected]
