Online booking is now open for the 2018 International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) and IPAF Summit, which is the networking event of the year for the access industry.

Now in its tenth year, the International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs), will be held on the evening of Thursday, 8 March. It attracts around 450 industry professionals, and along with the Summit, provides excellent networking opportunities.

IAPAs 2017 winners.

The IAPAs are jointly organised by KHL’s Access International and the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), and celebrates best practice and excellence in the powered access industry.

The deadline for entries has now passed and the organisers would like to thank all those who took part. There has been an exceptional response as always, with just over 100 entries across the 13 categories, ranging from new products and innovations to safety and training.

As always, the entries will be judged, this month, by an independent panel of prominent industry experts with long-standing experience in the business. They alone decide the winners - recipients of IAPA trophies can therefore be justifiably proud of their achievement. 

IPAF Summit

The speaker line-up for this year’s IPAF Summit is as strong as ever with some of the world’s leading authorities from the access sector already confirmed.

Held on the same day as the IAPAs, the Summit is a high-profile conference bringing together senior representatives from across the access community to discuss and debate the latest developments in our industry. There is no charge for attending the Summit.

This year the conference theme will be: Quantifying Sustainability. Speakers confirmed for the free IPAF Summit include:

  • William Plummer, Executive VP and CFO, United Rentals
  • Brad Boehler, President, Skyjack
  • Norty Turner, Managing Director, Riwal
  • Guru Bandekar, Global Vice President, Product Management & Development, JLG Industries

There will be parallel sessions in the morning, one for MEWPs and one for MCWPs. The morning MEWPs session will focus on enhanced training techniques such as virtual reality and simulators. Further speakers will be announced soon.
