February is without a doubt the busiest month of the year for CalvinAyre.com and we’re pretty sure a lot of you are in the same boat. The real killer is all this busyness takes place over six consecutive days and nights in London, leaving most of us with the need to take another six consecutive days and nights off as holiday in order to recover.
All anxiety and anticipated tiredness aside, below you will find our featured conferences and parties of the month and the CalvinAyre.com team looks forward to seeing you there!
