office*, the UK’s largest event for the office professional, is returning to Olympia, London on February 28-March 1 2018. Thousands of PAs, EAs, VAs and Office Managers will benefit from their visit to the complimentary two-day event. Last year, office* attracted 5,520 unique visitors, each of whom spent an average of 5hrs 32mins at the show.
An established event in the PA industry’s calendar, office* has another exciting show prepared for its attendees. The 2018 edition will address new needs created by the evolution of the PA and EA role, most obviously through the suppliers and training available at the show.
The educational programme, covering a choice of over 50 topics, is designed to help attendees carry out the varied tasks that they’re increasingly responsible for. As job expectations extend beyond the traditional, the show’s CPD-accredited sessions will provide practical knowledge that will benefit the day-to-day activities of attendees. As always, sessions are aimed at development from a personal career, and skills perspective.
