80 events to inspire your 2020 marketing calendar

Cheers to 2020!

Cheers to 2020! And, of course, the new decade that comes with it. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2020 is the Year of the Rat. We're also blessed with an extra day as we get a Leap Day on February 29th, as well as an incredible amount of sport and music events. Plus, UK workers will be treated a bank holiday on a Friday.
