UK VA Awards 2019-2020


 
With its original inception in 2007, the UK VA Conference and VA Awards celebrated their 10th birthday on 21st April 2017, and to appropriately recognise the occasion of the 10th anniversary we held the 2017 VA Conference at Olympia, London on 2nd March 2017 as a special feature of the VA Day at Office* Show 2017.

 

After the success and feedback of the 2017 10th Anniversary event, the UK VA Conference returned to Olympia in March 2018, and also to Olympia, London for #VACon19, February 2019.

 

UK VA Awards are held from April to March each year with the Grand Finals at the UK VA Conference.

 

The #VACon20 UK VA Conference 2020 is scheduled for Weds. 26th February 2020 at ExCeL, London.

The UK VA Awards for our 2019-2020 programme will commence on the Regional basis of recent years with announcements and presentations taking place at Regional VA Conferences and Business Events. This is to continue our work towards providing a bridge to platforms to more readily engage with the business community. Our continuing goal is to promote the role and value of Virtual Assistants to the global corporates, entrepreneurs and the SME business networks.

We are very grateful and encouraged by the extremely positive feedback that we have had so far, and we now call on all Virtual Assistant communities and networks to support this strategic initiative that can, in our view, help to significantly raise the awareness of the enormous value of Virtual Assistants to the business world, and the benefits of a professional flexible workforce in managing the continually evolving global economic conditions of the future.

 

Our very best wishes and good luck to every UK VA Awards candidate.
