Just some of the topics we will cover

We are still working on the speakers and the topics that we will cover at this years conference.

We will have a “Meet and Greet” for you to network with other Virtual Assistants. We’ve allocated ample time in the conference schedule for you to establish meaningful connections with other like-minded VA’s.

We look forward to a Q&A Mastermind as our day’s final session with industry experts, speakers and peers. You can ask the organisers and the speakers anything and everything!

Enjoy chatting to your VA peers about the things we all navigate on a daily basis.

This year's conference was amazing. It was a day of learning, laughing, networking and listening to great speakers. I have took so much away that I can quickly put into my business. Looking forward to next years already

I have been attending the VA Conference since I launched as a Virtual Assistant and it's my must-attend event of the year. Not only is the conference packed with interesting and useful seminars and hosts the VA awards but it also means I can meet suppliers who can help my business and those of my clients, and is just THE place to be to catch up with fellow VAs. As I run a remote team, it's only at the VA Conference that I get the chance to catch up with some of the team in person, as well as VAs in my training groups and other networks.

The VA Conference 2022 was the first I'd ever attended and it was simply wonderful. What a fantastic opportunity to focus on our businesses and spend time with like minded individuals. It was great to be able to connect with so many lovely VA's across the country proving that our industry really is #collaborationnotcompetition. Thank you to all involved in the organising - I can't wait until next year!

The UK Virtual Assistant Awards

The UKVA awards provide a bridge to the wider business community while promoting the role and value of Virtual Assistants to entrepreneurs and the SME business networks.

We are delighted that the UKVA Awards get presented as part of the Conference Gala Dinner.
