Take a look at May’s marketing calendar, which includes interesting days for your customers to learn more.

In the month of May, we’re all starting to get ready for the summer; longer nights and warmer days. Yes!

In England, 17th May is a date we’ll look forward to, as the next step of our Roadmap is likely to be opening up indoor seating for restaurants and cafes, plus hotels, cinemas, children’s play areas. Even the wearing of facemasks will be reviewed on this date.

May is also meditation month (something I’m a big fan of), Jewish-American heritage month and eggs benedict month!

Our new Marketing Intern Kyle has carefully chosen the best events for May, so you can plan your marketing calendar around them.
