The hot summer months may not bring about a lull in your work schedule but they do beckon even the most dedicated among us to sandy beaches and exotic locales, reminding us constantly of just how much we’d like to get out from in front of our computers and hit the road on a relaxing trip.
Thankfully, you don’t always have to choose between work and play! If you want to get away over the next few months guilt-free, consider taking a vacation while on business at one of these five holiday destinations holding social media events:
Social Media Week will take place in cities all over the world this September and Berlin, Germany is again playing host to some excellent social media events throughout the week.
