Countdown to the IAPAs
By Euan Youdale18 March 2014
The International Awards for Powered Access (IAPA) are just over two weeks away.
The awards ceremony and dinner take place on the same day as the IPAF Summit conference, 3 April 2014, at the historic Beaumont Estate Hotel in Windsor, near London, UK, (just 15 minutes from Heathrow Airport).
Jointly organised by KHL’s Access International, Access Lift & Handlers and the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), the glittering event celebrates best practice and excellence in the powered access industry, attracting audiences of around 450 each year.
There was an outstanding response to the IAPAs 2014, with more than 100 entries across 12 award categories. Included in those was a great number of very strong entries; so if you didn’t make it on to the shortlist this time, please don’t be put off entering again for the awards in 2015.

The shortlist was decided at the judges’ meeting in London, UK, on 4 February. We would also like to thank their great efforts in helping to make the IAPAs 2014 a fantastic event.
The independent and impartial judging panel included: Andries Schouten, managing director of HDW Nederland and Gunco; Craig Paylor, former president of JLG and current president/owner of US-based National Truck Body (NTB) Solutions; George Landsberg, managing director and owner of South African access equipment distribution company Goscor Hi-Reach; Gerhard Hillebrand, IPAF’s representative in Italy since 2004; and Steve Couling, managing director of TIME-Versalift, UK & Ireland and IPAF president.
