Well the first Online International Virtual Assistants Convention has finished. The booths for the Trade Expo will be open till end June I believe. The seminars, if you registered for them, are available to log into and listen to still – if you didn’t get to the presentation at the time it was running. But basically it is over until next year.
Mark it in your computer calendar – 3rd Friday in May is now officially International Virtual Assistants Day and hopefully we’ll start seeing this reflected in printed calendars before too long. So the convention will run from 17 – 19 May 2007 (US) – here in Australia it will actually start on the morning of Friday 18th May because of the time difference.
If you are a VA, or looking to become one, and didn’t attend, you missed a fantastic opportunity to learn about this industry but don’t despair – you can still visit the booths. Same if you are looking to use a VA for your business and you want to understand the industry more.
I want to thank all of those who sent me their congratulations and best wishes during the convention, via my booth or by email – I really appreciate your encouragement and support. I thoroughly enjoyed being involved, getting to know some of the ‘senior’ VAs globally and working alongside them. I was honoured in being asked to MC the Awards Ceremony and really enjoyed the process. I look forward to seeing what next year will bring! KMT
