UK VA Awards 2017


With its original inception in 2007, the UK’s VA Conference and VA Awards celebrate their 10th birthday on 21st April 2017.

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.

Thereafter, from 3rd March 2017 onwards, the UK VA Awards for 2017 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 encouraged by the feedback that we have had so far, and we now call on all Virtual Assistant communities and networks to support this new 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.
