office* launches new Office Manager & PA Supplier Awards for 2016

office* – the award-winning business event for executive office support professionals, has launched a new set of awards to recognise the outstanding brands and suppliers serving the UK’s office manager and PA community.

PAs, EAs, VAs, and office managers are invited to vote for their favourite UK suppliers across ten categories – covering everything from business travel, venues and accommodation, to corporate gifts, office equipment, and recruitment.  There is also an additional (11th) award for the most essential everyday office product (a.k.a the one they just can’t live without).

“The Office Manager & PA Supplier Awards represent a great way to highlight some of the brilliant business to business suppliers helping to keep Britain’s offices running smoothly.  Want to say thanks to that special venue that went above and beyond for a corporate event?  Or the recruitment company that helped fill a long-standing vacancy?  How about that caterer that served up a feast on short notice?  The courier that always delivers service with a smile?  Or an expert trainer that found a new way to motivate your team?  Tell us about the suppliers that you love working with – the ones that help lighten your workload – and we’ll honour the best of them at office* 2016,” says event manager Sarah Cooper.

The awards shortlists (and eventual winners) will be voted for by the UK’s office manager and PA community.  The final results – to be announced at office* at London ExCeL on 11-12 May – will provide an essential snapshot of the leading brands and suppliers driving the newest trends, products and services on the market.
