      PREVIEW: The PA Show 2020

      • 0

      The PA Show is returning in February with an increased remit and some exciting new conference streams. PA Life provides a sneak preview…

      The PA Show returns on February 25th & 26th and heads to ExCeL, London. The show will once again provide a strong mix of expo stands, educational and inspirational seminar sessions, plus plenty of networking opportunities.

      The PA Show attracted thousands of PAs and EAs from across the UK earlier this year – and the 2020 event looks set to be even stronger. PA Life will have a significant presence there – not only will we be present in the expo area, but we are hosting the Workplace Wellness & Wellbeing Summit (see left) – a series of seminar sessions hosted throughout the two days. Plus we will have free wellness activities taking place for all, too.

      So what can you expect from attending the PA Show 2020?

      Workplace Wellness & Wellbeing Summit

      The Workplace Wellness and Wellbeing Summit – hosted by PA Life – will provide two days of talks from leading experts and thought-leaders with one goal in mind: to help you to prioritise self-care and maintain a good work/life balance. Topics covered will include Nutrition, Goal Mapping, Avoiding Burnout and much more.
