UK VA Awards – VA of the Year 2020 Regional Awards get underway

The search begins across the UK for VA of the Year 2020.

Regional and National VA of the Year 2020 titles will be awarded later in the year, with first closing dates for entries in approx. 6 weeks, Sunday, 31st May 2020.

The UK VA Awards continue to grow year on year with the awards supporting the rise in profile of Virtual Assistants.

In more recent years, the winners of the UK VA Awards frequently experience an increase of income between 50 to 100% with effective PR and marketing of their achievements – with more and more Virtual Assistants beginning to embrace and engage with this approach to developing their business success.

John Palmer, Chair of the Panel of Judges – says. “the impressive growth of the UK VA Awards is exponential year on year – with 2020 seeing the most pre-registrations ever – the entry documents will begin to be distributed from Monday 20th April 2020.

Against the backdrop of the current challenges of the CV-19 Public Health crisis and the related uncertainty of relaxation of social distancing measures and events for 2020, we are adopting the virtual approach to announcing finalists and winners later in the year.

This will be the first time that we have done this, and as much as we like to see VAs get together and share their success and celebrations together, particularly in front of business audiences, our candidates have already confirmed that they understand and support what we have to do for the 2020 programme.

Remote working and VAs are very much in the spotlight and so the outstanding and successful shortlisted, finalist and award winners for 2020 can look forward to some very positive outcomes and gain new clients as the world begins to emerge from the crisis as the year progresses with business and our economies getting going again.

Virtual Assistants need to continue to maintain their professional standards and the most successful and outstanding VAs will be those that are most likely to attract new clients and become strong and sustainable businesses for 2020 and beyond.

We very much  look forward to seeing the UK VA  Award candidates travel that exciting journey this year.”
