Our vision continues to be to give EAs, PAs, VAs and support professionals the opportunity to meet, network and develop meaningful long-term professional relationships and personal friendships, and to bring the community together in a networking environment.
Since its inception, the network has grown beyond all expectations and has been a resounding success, not just in Manchester, but the success has spread across the UK, with PA networks now being established throughout the country. The network has worked with some of Manchester's finest venues including the Radisson Edwardian Free Trade Hall, Alberts Schloss, Hotel Football and Stock Exchange to name a few.
As part of its growth the network in 2015 launched the Manchester PA Awards, these awards were the first of their kind in Manchester and year on year attract more attendees and sponsors. In 2019 the awards saw over 700 of Manchester's business community come together to celebrate the incredible achievements in this industry.
The Manchester PA Network is run as a not for profit organisation and is proud to donate all monies from events, ticket sales and raffles to the Christie Charity, in 2019 the network celebrated raising over £200,000 for the charity.
New members are always welcome and we ask you to drop us an email to email@example.com or visit our contact us page to sign up, we appreciate that attending networking events can be daunting which is why we offer a 'buddy' service, so if you are attending alone and would like some moral support we can pair you up with an exisiting member beforehand.
One thing we do promise at all our events is a very warm welcome.
