IAPAs attract huge support
By Euan Youdale01 April 2014
The International Awards for Powered Access (IAPA) takes place on Thursday this week.
Such is the anticipation for the awards ceremony and dinner, the main dining area has sold out with some 500 attendees expected on the night.
The ceremony takes place on the same day as another prestigious event, the IPAF Summit, on 3 April 2014. Both events will have equally impressive surroundings at the historic Beaumont Estate Hotel in Windsor, near London, UK.
Jointly organised by KHL’s Access International 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.
